Export Dial-up Connections & Import to another computer

My Desktop has about 10 VPN connections and 3 Dial-up connections. Is there a file where Windows store all these connections?
I want to move all connections settings to my Laptop, but by copy & paste, not by doing manually.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you have XP on both, you can just use the File and Settings Tranfer Wizard.

HOW TO: Save and Restore Dial-up Connections in Windows XP

This step-by-step article describes how to use the Remote Access Phonebook (Rasphone.pbk) file to save and later restore dial-up connections, and to copy your computer's connections to other computers.

Save and Restore Dial-Up Connections
1.      Locate the Rasphone.pbk file in the %SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk folder.

Note The Application Data folder is a hidden folder. To view the folder, follow these steps:
a.       Open the All Users folder, and then click Folder Options on the Tools menu.
b.       Click View, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.

2.      After you have created all your connections, copy the Rasphone.pbk to a safe location, and then copy the Rasphone.pbk file to the %SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk folder on the other computer.

Note When you replace the Rasphone.pbk file, you are prompted to confirm the file replacement. Click Yes to replace the file.

3.      Restart the computer to view the connections.
You cannot use this procedure to copy Connection Manager profiles. These profiles have their own .pbk, .cms, and .cmp configuration files.
