Hi all,



I have several remote computers running outside my corporate network.  These computers do not have a user working on them as they run by themselves. 


What I want to do:

I want to setup the Barracuda VPN client to automatically start when the computer is turned on.  I understand I can save password/username etc, but is there anyway to make the Barracuda Access Client initialize the connection automatically? (i.e. through a service, etc?)

There is a techlib article for this, originally for the NG Firewall but as the products are essentially the same this applies here too :

Thanks Der! 


The implementation you provided works really well.  


There is one issue I am still experiencing... When the remote computers reboot themselves, they always ask for a password on reboot.  Is there anyway to store the password for that VPN?  I have Remember MS Credentials set to "Local"
