Hi

I have stared using, kix i my compagny.
Som users have a laptop, and an HardWare VPN tunnel at home.

When they are using there laptop at work, there is no probs with the kix, but when they com home where its over VPN, the kix do not run.
The computer have VPN/Access to the domaincontroller all the time, because the VPN tunnel is created in an Hardware box

Someone know why? / What is the official/most used way to make the runkix run on logon?

Just another stupid question from nOrphf

There has been some other threads on this subject. What VPN client are you using? If you use Cisco's VPN client on the laptop, it can be configured to start the tunnel before the user logs on to the laptop.

Then when the user does log on, your script should execute.

ok, As I said, the VPN tunnel is created in an Hardware box (ZyWALL 2), so the VPN tunnel is running, even before, the laptop is started.

And the computer is a member of the domain? If not, your script will not run. If so, have you verified that the computer can find the dmain and logon itself?

Have you seen our FAQ: Windows XP Professional Fast Logon Optimization

Is the VPN established before you log into the computer?

There are multiple posts dealing with this situation, most of them recommend to trigger the login script once a VPN connection has been detected.

Does the black DOS window appear at all?

In your batch file and script create a log of activity.

Include lines like:

date<nul >>c:\script.log
echo. >>c:\script.log
time<nul >>c:\script.log
echo. >>c:\script.log

so you have evidence that the batch file executed.

No DOS window appears.

- CMD.exe or Command.com can not be executed on the computer

This implies that the VPN is started before the login process.

Hmmm it looks like it has something to do with the account, the script do not run at all.

Someone knows what could cause that?

EDIT: I have disabled Windows XP Fast logon. So the Network should be established.

you guys, he has a HARDWARE vpn tunnel, there is no issue with the tunnel being up before the user tries to login, also, in a domain controller environment the user wont be able to log on to the domain if the client computer is unable to contact the domain controller. so basically if these guys are able to log on, then they should be recieving the script. check thier active directory settings.

This may be correct.. But, you can set the Cisco VPN to use or not use a login script..

Are your remote clients DNS settings pointing to your internal DNS server or using the ISP DNS?

Not enough but you could try populating LMHosts with the needed info.

A minor point but this is not entirely true. They will be able to log in to the laptop using cached credentials, and will be prompted for credentials when accessing a network resource. Not exactly what was conveyed.

Quote:

%0\..\kix\kix32.exe \\dc\kix\logon.kix



Considering the fact that he is trying to run kix32.exe from the DC, it could be a DNS issue. Since he said the "script" did not run (after adding the logging Howard recommended) which script does not run, the batch or the kix? Maybe try using a LOCAL copy of kix32.exe instead of the one on the DC?
