  • Launch application before Windows logon

    Currently, the SonicWALL Global VPN client does not have a setting to launch before the Windows logon screen.

    I am trying to find a way within Windows to make this start before the Windows logon, so the user can authenticate against the domain instead of relying on cached credentials.

    Would making a startup script be the best way to do that?

    Does you peer allow for the saving of passwords???

    How are your user going to authenticate to the peer if they can't access the software until they're logged in???

    I can't remember how the SWGVC stores the passwords but i really wouldn't recommend it due to the security implications.

    Think of this. Your users laptop gets stolen. The thief starts the laptop up and almost immediately gets access to your LAN because you have the clients set to login automatically using the SWGVC.
