DESCRIPTION: How to Specify Global VPN Client Launch Options
Specifying Global VPN Client Launch Options
You can specify how the SonicWall Global VPN Client launches and what notification windows appear using the controls in the General tab of the Options dialog box. Choose View > Options to display the Options dialog box.
The General tab includes the following settings to control the launch of the Global VPN Client:
• Start this program when I log in - Launches the SonicWall Global VPN Client when you log into your computer.
• Warn me before enabling a connection that will block my Internet traffic. Activates a Connection Warning message notifying you that the VPN connection will block local Internet and network traffic.
• Remember the last window state (closed or open) the next time the program is started - Allows the Global VPN Client to remember the last window state (open or closed) the next time the program is started. For example, a user can launch the Global VPN Client from the system tray without opening a window on the desktop.
• When closing the connections window - Specifies how the Global VPN Client behaves when the window is closed. The three options include: – Minimize the window (restore it from the task bar) - Minimizes the window to taskbar and restores it from the taskbar. – Hide the window (re-open it from the tray icon) - The default setting that hides the Global VPN Client window when you close it. You can open the Global VPN Client from the program icon in the system tray. Enabling this setting also displays the Show the notification when I hide the connections window checkbox. – Show the notification when I hide the connections window - Checking this box activates the SonicWall Global VPN Client Hide Notification window whenever you close the Global VPN Client window while the program is still running. The message tells you that the Global VPN Client program continues to run after you close (hide) the window.
