We are running 802.1x port auth, there are two type of users, guests and
employees, both can fail to authenticate, employess, because they fail
to pass the host checker, and guests gain access to the Internet only

They are both redirected to a web page that offers a guest access to the
Internet or an employee will be directed to the Get Well server, the
user can pick the latest required s/w to get them back up to the

What I am looking for is method similar to those used by some hotels I
have stayed in, where you are given a login at reception, when you
connect to the hotel network, it automatically fires up IE and present
the login page.

While I have no clue at all what a guest/get well LAN might be, I am 
sure that with the security of Windows it is possible to auto-launch a 
browser window - I have seen it on friends' computers ;-)
