NM lets you set up VPN clients for accessing specific remote networks,
so all you gotta do is a couple of clickies in the NM applet to bring 
up or stop your access to, e.g., your office.

It supports several common VPN types, but the one I use it for is
standard Cisco vpn using the vpnc client. It also supports several
others though i've not tried any of them.
