View Full Version : [ubuntu] Automating a VPN Connection

February 23rd, 2009, 07:52 PM
Hello there.
I wonder if there is any way to automate a vpn connection to the internet.
I'm using wifi to connect to my college network and I always need to first connect to a wireless network and then activate my vpn.

What I would like to do is automate this so that whenever a certain wireless network is detected the network manager would automatically connect me to the appropriate vpn. (I have the login info saved so there is no need for user input)

Any ideas how to do that (if it is possible at all without reprogramming the networking tools :D )?
