Donald Hafner, professor of political science (funny, I thought politics was now relegated to the physical education department), asks:

I need to use a VPN connection to my workplace when I connect via my DSL line. Is there a way to have my Mac establish the VPN connection at startup? I am running Panther on my iMac G5.

If you have Internet Connect configured so that your VPN connection is the default, I’d do it with this simple AppleScript:

tell application "Internet Connect" activate connect quit end tell

Save it as an application and make it a login item. When you next login to your account, the VPN connection will be established.
