I am using my school's VPN service to surf on netflix. I have to connect to the VPN most of the time. My school uses Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client. I have to enter password and accept a banner every time I connect. Is there a way to automate this connection on OS X?

If you are using OS X to control your connection: enter image description here

The reason this comes up is because the Cisco box you are connecting to is forcing interaction. It's actually a setting on the Cisco VPN aggregator that enforces security. Apple doesn't provide circumvention for (Apple Script/Automator) this as part of the agreement Cisco made with Apple (according to both Cisco and Apple). I've investigated this before and this was the answer I was given by both sides.

The same is true with the Cisco OS X VPN client.
