Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have the Shrew client installed in order to connect to a cisco VPN.

(side note: anyconnect royally blows and I spent several hours trying to get it to work; I had shrew running within 2 minutes of installing it.)

Anyway, I can connect just fine and it works.

What I need to do is schedule the connection. For example, once a day I want a process to start shrew, auto connect to the vpn then run a SQL script. Once the script is finished I want shrew to disconnect from the VPN.

So far I have the following:

"C:\Program Files\ShrewSoft\VPN Client\ipsecc.exe" -r ClientSite -u MyUser -p MyPassword -a

When this runs, Shrew connects and starts the VPN interface. However, that line doesn't return until someone clicks the "disconnect" button.

Ideas?
