wouldnt you be better off with IPSEC tunnel. pptp is not as secure and has to be initialized. read over this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816514. the IPSEC tunnel would do exactly what you want to do.

ipsec will create a tunnel between to networks that starts when the pc is started. a vpn router would be a better solutoin

Hello,

For what it sounds like you want to do,
Once you've created your VPN connection by the the normal means in the GUI, just create a shortcut for
C:\Windows\System32\rasdial.exe
and add in your connection details.

Usage:

RASDIAL.EXE entryname [ username [ password | * ]] [ /DOMAIN:domain ] [ /PHONE:phonenumber ] [ /CALLBACK:callbacknumber ] [ /PHONEBOOK:phonebookfile ] [ /PREFIXSUFFIX ]
RASDIAL.EXE [ entryname ] /DISCONNECT
RASDIAL.EXE
