Show icon in notification area if connected to VPN?

Recommended Posts

I have to use a VPN to connect to my work if I'm working from home. I'm constantly forgetting to disconnect it when I finish.


Does anyone know if there is a program I can run that would show an icon in the notification area if I'm connected to a VPN?

I work remote as well, but the Cisco program we use for VPN runs in the taskbar, so I never forget to disconnect. Anyhow, you don’t need a third party program. You can create a shortcut to disconnect from the network. I’m a bit rusty, and not at my computer, but I believe I used the parameter, rasdial "Name of VPN" /DISCONNECT, from my system32 folder. Hopefully someone else chimes in as well.
