7 :: Explain how to execute WScript & WSH object? How will i create WSH objects?

The WScript object is directly available to all scripts being executed by wscript or cscript and represents the currently running instance of the scripting host executable (wscript or cscript). The WScript object cannot be instantiated directly using CreateObject, however scripts running under WSH can obtain a reference to it via the Application property.

Through the WScript object one can gain access to WSH version information, the paths to the host executable and the script currently being executed, any arguments passed to the script, and the standard input, output and error streams. In addition, the WScript object can be used to instantiate, obtain references to, and bind to COM components. Methods and properties are also available to alter the script timeout values, and to cause the script to sleep for a specified period of time.

9 :: How to disconnect the vpn client in VB Script?

My users have found this helpful. When a user has a drive mapped (especially in XP) on a laptop, it can sometimes slow the system down looking for the drive when not connected to the network. This solution allows them to connect to the Network drives only when they want to if in the local office or through VPN.
'Although DirectConnect works welll, not all of us have the resources for that.

This script will look up a set of network drive, and if connected, disconect them, or if not connected, connect them.

additional code could be added to connect printers, or even test the network before attempting connection.
