Examples

Example 1: Removing a single VPN connection

PS C:\> Remove-VpnConnection -Name "Test1" -Force -PassThru
Name                  : Test1

ServerAddress         : 10.1.1.2

AllUserConnection     : False

Guid                  : {4B308E9B-C225-42CB-8158-307193429591}

TunnelType            : Automatic

AuthenticationMethod  : {MsChapv2}

EncryptionLevel       : Required
