Encrypt Web.Config sections using aspnet_regiis

Using the Command Line method, how can we encrypt 2 sections of the web.config file using aspnet_regiis tool (i.e. AppSettings and ConnetctionStrings) with just running the command one time?  Is this possible?  What would this command look like?

Also, if I have two keys - is it possible to encrypt one and not the other?

Thanks -

So we cannot encrypt two sections with just running the command once?

This does not work: aspnet_regiis -pe connectionStrings, AppSettings -app /YourApp
