Connect / Disconnect Email alert

Originally posted under access server and got moved to Access Server Requests by mods.

However, this was a more generic question on how this can be achieved.

The below links indicate this is possible:

Is it possible to elaborate on this?

Im testing on an AS server with no luck.

I have added numerous entries into the as.conf file, with variations of below:

--client-connect /usr/local/openvpn_asa/etc/up.sh

up.sh has a basic script to send an email
