How to make pptp VPN connection through script?

I am wondering if it's possible to run a script or exe file to make a pptp vpn connection instead of walk user through the steps of creating vpn connection on their desktop.

Yes, you can. You can use a batch file for starting the connection without installing anything, or use the CMAK described at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc739464(WS.10).aspx . For most users with static connections the latter is better, as it creates an dial-up entry you can just activate.

The batch file approach has the con that all necessary data, including user and password if provided, are visible (plain text) in that batch file. But it is much more flexible if you need to connect to multiple sites.
