 +====== Event Actions ======
 +
 +
 +Open Mobile can be configured to automatically launch other applications or scripts, before, during or after the Open Mobile connection process.  Examples of event actions could include launching an anti-virus definition update, running a script to change firewall rules, or opening a browser window to a company Intranet. Most actions will launch a single application, but complex actions can be constructed by configuring multiple event actions to run a succession of applications.

 +You configure Event Actions in the Open Mobile Portal.
