Add VPN connection with PowerShell


Ok, when you need to configure VPN on more PC is easier to do this with Powershell than with mouse clicking ... Here is an example for L2TP over IPSec.

Add-VpnConnection -Name "<vpn-name>" -ServerAddress "<address-to-your-server>" -TunnelType "L2tp" -AuthenticationMethod Chap,MSChapv2,Pap -L2tpPsk "<your-psk>"

or create script for it so you don't need to remmer all that options.

# add-l2tp.ps1
param($name, $server, $psk)

Add-VpnConnection -Name $name -ServerAddress $server -TunnelType "L2tp" -AuthenticationMethod Chap,MSChapv2,Pap -L2tpPsk $psk

Then all what you need to do is call your script:

.\add-l2tp.ps1 -name "My VPN" -server "" -psk "mySu9erS3cr3tPSK"
