How to write a script for PIA to auto connect when connecting to a certain network.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have created a custom schedule in windows scheduler to launch PIA when connecting to my school's wifi. But what I want is for it to automatically connect when connecting to my school network. All mine will do so far is launch the PIA client. I think I need to attach a script, but I don't know how to write one.

You should use the PIA command line parameters to specify that you want to connect on launch. This should be under

Task -> Edit -> Actions Tab -> Edit Action -> Add Arguments

Command line options:

I am aware of the start at launch feature. But I want it to be launched only when I connect to the school wifi. Mainly because they have many sites locked (including some useful ones) And I want the VPN to circumvent that.
