Windows – Is it possible to create a VPN setting on the command line

netshvpnwindows 7

I would like to perform the equivalent to the following steps but from the command line:

Control Panel / Network and Sharing Center / Set up a new connection or network

Wizard starts ->
Connect to a workplace / Create a new connection / Use my Internet connection (VPN) / IP Address and Destination Name, etc.

I think that I might be able to do this with something like netsh but I could really use some assistance in jump starting this.

Can anyone help, even if its only to tell me it can't be done that way 😉

Many thanks

  • Use the Connection Manager Administration Kit (CMAK) to create a profile that can be distributed / installed in a silent mode on the client.
