VPN Client for Windows XP/Vista/7 via Group Policy


For maximum points can anyone please tell me the best way to deliver a VPN client config to a Windows XP/Vista/7 system that is connecting to a Windows 2003/2008 Server (PPTP)?

I have a number of laptops that are out in the field, some of which come back into the office and connect to the LAN (Server 2003/2008 AD environment) and need the best/quickest way of replacing an existing Cisco VPN solution that will not exist in a couple of weeks in our environment.

Take a look at NCP Secure Entry ( It supports all three operating systems including 64-bit. I use it myself for IPsec VPN, but it support PPTP as well so far as I know.

I haven't used it yet myself, but I had come across this for configuring the Windows VPN client through a combination of Powershell and Group Policy.

Other than that I think you're looking at using a Connection Manager package.

Thanks again.
