Establish VPN Connection Programmatically

Apologies if this has been covered, but I found nothing while searching.

I'm trying to write a quick app that will connect to a partner via VPN, grab some queries into datasets, then dump that data back to our database (due to security, I have to have a middle-man machine in the dmz).  Is there a way to launch a VPN connection from within the program?

Either building a connection on the fly and destroying, or just accessing the connection already on the system and connecting it will be fine.

As this project has been bumped back to the hot list, does anyone have any syntax examples of how the ipseccmd works?  I've read the docs on how to create policy and rules and the like, but haven't found much on how to actually establish the connection.

For example, the client machine will need to connect to 10.10.10.10 using a given login, password and domain.  So far, I've not been able to figure out how to establish the actual connection with ipseccmd.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
