Group Policy includes the Network Options preference extension. This extension allows you to configure virtual private network (VPN) or dial-up networking connections.

Getting started

You can create and configure VPN connection and dial-up networking connection preference items for any domain-based Group Policy object (GPO). You configure the settings by editing a GPO using the Group Policy Management Console. When editing a GPO, you can find this preference extension at the following location:
