transfer vpn to another pc

Is VPN specific to a PC, or can the account be transferred to another PC?

VPN is user specific in general. There may be control from the VPN connector for very secure environments, but I have not run into this. You cannot however just copy the software to the new PC.  You need the installation sofware along with any configuration settings and profiles necessary for the specific connection.

That is highly specific to the VPN client used. I agree that, in most cases, you need to install the client first. Transferring the config by copying might be possible or not, e.g. with Cisco you can just copy the PCF file, but maybe need to reimport a certificate (which might even be specific to the computer - invalid on another, then).
