I'm having a problem with my VPN connection at work, interfering with some Internet Connectivity during start up.
I have set up the VPN to not "Use default gateway on remote network" so, once I connect to the VPN, my Internet traffic goes through the normal route and everything works like a charm, including mapped network drives and so on.
The problem I have is at start up (basically when I come in in the morning), what happens here is that there is a Log On script that maps my Documents folder to a network drive (H: as usual). If I left the VPN from the day before, the mapping is broken and I cannot browse to the H drive. The solution is generally to disconnect the VPN, browse to the H drive (which will work ok now) and then reconnect the VPN (at this point the H drive will keep on working fine).
Does anyone have any idea what may cause this and how to overcome the problem? I'm sorry I don't have access to the Log On script but I'm assuming is a pretty standard thing (I've seen it in other workplaces).
I'm an admin on the machine and I was thinking that a solution could be to add a script that disconnect the VPN (using
rasdial) before Log On. Do you think it's a good idea or is there something else I should consider?
