Cisco AnyConnect – Running ‘Logon Scripts / OnConnection Scripts’

KB ID 0001353 Problem I’ve seen this asked a lot in forums, and it came up on EE again today. I’ve never had to set this up in the past, but I’ve posted the links to the correct Cisco articles when people have asked.¬† After the question was asked again today, I thought I’d take the time to write a decent article on how to do it.

Microsoft Exchange – Forwarding Mail To External Email Addresses

KB ID 0001350 Dtd 05/10/17 Problem Note: Below I’m using Exchange 2016, but the same approach will work for previous versions. There are a load of reasons why you might want to do this, but before you go off in this direction consider why you are doing this in the first place.
