I would like to perform the equivalent to the following steps but from the command line:

Control Panel / Network and Sharing Center / Set up a new connection or network

Wizard starts -> Connect to a workplace / Create a new connection / Use my Internet connection (VPN) / IP Address and Destination Name, etc.

I think that I might be able to do this with something like netsh but I could really use some assistance in jump starting this.

Can anyone help, even if its only to tell me it can't be done that way ;-)

Many thanks
