  • Can the end-user see the vbs login script?

    If I use a VBS logon script run from a GPO, is there anyway that the end user can see the script code? The reason I ask is that I'm thinking of installing the ISA Firewall client using the logon script but since users are not admins of their workstations I would have to specify a RunAs command with admin credentials.

    Thanks.

    You don't need to use a script in order to deploy ISA firewall client!
    this is a msi packet (MS_FWC.msi) and it can be easy deployed to domain member computers using GPO.

      The answer would be yes. You would have to give them rights to read/execute the script and they could map to your script folder and read it.
      I don't know anything about (you or your) computers.
      Research/test for yourself when listening to free advice.

        You can try "encoding" the script using M$ Windows Script Encoder:

        Do realize this is not strong encryption and there is at least 1 free VBE Decoder script out there (do use the Fixed version) to decode back to original splendor.

        Here's an old link discussing how to run a batch file as a domain admin that gives some discussion on how to hide it as well as how to elevate privs:

        I'm sure there is more on this site.
