I use vpnc in terminal to setup a vpn connection, is there a way that i can make a script so when i execute the script it just starts. Instead of putting again al the gateway info etc.

From man vpnc:

       The daemon reads configuration data from the following places:
       ·      command line options
       ·      config file(s) specified on the command line
       ·      /etc/vpnc/default.conf
       ·      /etc/vpnc.conf
       ·      prompting the user if not found above

You probably either want to modify the /etc/vpnc/default.conf or create a new one such as /etc/vpnc/myvpn.conf so you can type either (probably with sudo) vpnc or vpnc myvpn
