Partial Solution for VPN not Starting Automaticallu

When I discovered VPN does not startup automatically in Windows or Mac computers, I was told that a future update would fix it. Inn the meantime i added Norton 360 to my Startup folder. In windows:

To add an app to Startup:

  1. Select the Start  button and scroll to find the app you want to run at startup.
  2. Right-click the app, select More, and then select Open file location. This opens the location where the shortcut to the app is saved. If there isn’t an option for Open file location, it means the app can’t run at startup.
  3. With the file location open, press the Windows logo key  + R, type shell:startup, then select OK. This opens the Startup folder.
  4. Copy and paste the shortcut to the app from the file location to the Startup folder.

For a MAC:

To make an app launch automatically on your Mac, simply do the following:

  1. Step 1: Open System Preferences.
  2. Step 2: Click Users & Groups.
  3. Step 3: Click Login Items. ...
  4. Step 4: Click the '+' sign and find the Application that you wish to auto-start via the Finder interface.

 Not as good as automatic, but at least it will serve as a reminder to Turn VPN ON
