CMAK VPN program, logon script, and Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    We have VPN programs created using CMAK on Windows Server 2008 that works for WIndows XP and Vista.
    With the advent of Windows 7, however, there are some visitors on our company that using Windows 7 on their newly bought laptop.

    We assume that it will have the same architecture as Vista so we installed the VPN program we've created (it works with Vista).
    Unfortunately the logon script never successfully map the network drive.

    After further debugging:
    • when the client first connect with the VPN, it will report that the command (net use etc) was completed successfully ... but none of the drive were mapped.
    • When we disconnect from the VPN, it will auto-run logoff script that will disconnect those mapped drive ... as we predicted it gave an error message saying there was no such drive (letter) connected.
    • And so we tried to connect again, but then it reported: the network drive (letter) is in use.
    • But despite those errors, if we run the logon script by itself AFTER successfully connects the VPN, it will work just fine.
    Anyone having this issue?

  • found it!

    To run CMAK-created VPN on windows 7, we need to create the vpn program from a CMAK that is installed on Windows 7 !
    So there IS a difference between vista and 7 after all.

    Please note that by the time of this posting, the above only applies to Windows 7 32-bit.
