Is it possible to bypass the welcome screen once user login?
See attached image. Ideally, I would like the users to enter the username and password, login, networkconnect start automatically (I got this one working) and minimize in the task bar.
The Network Connect stand-alone client behaves exactly like this. Have you considered using that instead of the webinterface?
as Lilja said once you have clicked the network connect client once by logging in it creates a program entry that you can go to by clicking start -> All programs -> Juniper Networks -> Network Connect - > Network connect you can drag and drop this to the desktop and have your users use that to login. This will do all the host checks and etc and a browser is not needed.
Thanks for the tips. But I prefer not to use the tradition method (Start >> All programs...). I just want user to open the web browser, type the URL, enter their username and password and get connected automatically without seeing the welcome screen the second time or having to use the tradition method. Is it possible to do this?
No, there is no way to do what you are wanting to do built-in to the device.
You would need to do one of the following:
1) Follow muttbarker's option (this is probably the easiest to implement) to point to an internal page that let's users know they are connected
2) Modify #1 and as the start page send users to your intranet page; when this is up, they will know to go to work
3) You can try to create an NC start script that will launch at login and terminate all browsers (not very user friendly) OR presents a message to them saying they are connected and to close the window.
It is not possible to directly interact with the browser that hosts the login page.
