    Hi all.

    I don't have any programming skills :( but, I want to setup a scheduled vpn connection. I found a script that forces a vpn connection at boot/login. But i want to alter that so that i can connect to the vpn at particular day of the month and at a particular time. Any ideas?

    Here is the script i found:

    on idle
        tell application "System Events"
            tell current location of network preferences
                set myConnection to the service "VPN University"
                if myConnection is not null then
                    if current configuration of myConnection is not connected then
                        connect myConnection
                    end if
                end if
            end tell
            return 120
        end tell
    end idle
    Than you in advanced!
