    Hey all, I'm having a problem with Cisco's VPN client for a pix firewall.

    My goal is complete automation of VPN connection and disconnection via scheduled command line script/batch. So far, it works great, except that once it connects, it opens a GUI authentication prompt that will sit there until you enter data, requiring human action = = not good for remote robot server. Once I enter the authentication data, it then says I'm connected, do I want to continue (kind of a dumb question, like "the food you cooked is ready, do you want to eat it?").

    So I need help getting over both these hurdles.

    This is going in a server that I'll be setting up permenantly in a users house with no monitor/keyboard/mouse, just power and network cable going in the back. It's supposed to connect via VPN over DSL, run a backup and report script, then disconnect the VPN circuit. So far, I almost have this machine 100% automated, requiring zero human interaction. Except for the VPN client, which is the root of this whole project.

    Thanks in advance, any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!!

    BTW, it's a Win2K server box, and the VPN client is whatever the current release from Cisco is.
