    Hey there, I’ve done a lot of reading online however nothing I have tried has worked for me, here’s what I am trying to achieve:
    As soon as a domain user logs into a domain computer, a VPN connection is made.
    I have put out scripts over GPO to no avail, the VPN is a windows VPN and the credentials are the users login details so PPTP.
    Does anyone know of a PowerShell or other script that will make this happen as soon as the user logs in. (even better as soon as the user has internet connection)
    Looking forward to your response.

    Would be nice to share the solution. That can help others having the same problem and stumbling upon this :D.

    Sure in the GPO you can change how long it takes for a script to kick in, doing this allowed the VPN connection to connect quicker allowing for other programs to operate as needed.

    Oh man, you really have no idea how to describe simplest thing....


    The solution was GPO (some, unknown, why should I bother to state which one). Pathetic...

    Why are you criticising the guy? He had a problem, he described it. He found the solution himself (which is not true for the vast majority of people asking questions here on MDL). He gave a clear and short enough description of the solution, but with enough detail that someone else trying to do the same thing will hopefully be able to find the relevant GPO setting. Your recommendation is nowhere near as clear or helpful.
