I have no java experience so please excuse my idiocy.
At my university to log into the wireless network we have to open a .jnlp file which then demands a username and password everytime...
I was wondering if anyone could shed some light onto whether it is possible for me to automate this process by somehow embedding my username and password into the file on my laptop??

Thanks in advance,

Dan Gates

You don't control the JNLP file -- it comes from the server where the network managers control it -- so no.

If you could track down the copy in the Java cache you could possibly hack that copy -- but the people who designed the JNLP file wouldn't have designed in a place to put a user ID and password, so you couldn't hack it into something which would automatically log you in. So no.

I have a copy of the .jnlp file, and can view it in text editor.
Could i not copy the file and add some code, whatever language it is to store my username / password locally in that file.
Thanks,
