I have many jobs that require me to pull data from a MYSQL database over a VPN. I'd like to issue a SAS command to launch the Cisco VPN client and log in automatically insteead of having to manually log in each time. Is that possible from SAS? I use SAS to launch other things like EXcel and Outlook and issue commands to those applications but I can't find anything that looks like what Iam trying to do with the VPN. Thanks.

The problem isn't so much launching the actual program but selecting the connection and passing the log-in info from SAS to the Cisco client to complete the connection.

Can that info be saved in the shortcut? I haven't used a Cisco client, but have always been able to setup shortcuts to include all necessary ids and passwords.
