connection to a vpn


Hello,
I was trying to configure a VPN connection through ppp over ethernet, but it seems that I cannot configure a hostname to connect to through that connection.

I'm trying to dial to i.e : 19.20.21.22 (in the internet) which I'm accessible to already. after configuring the pppoe-setup, I saw no place where I can configure the 19.20.21.22 as the address to dial to in order to connect.
in which file (and where) do I need to configure that, or am I doing it the wrong way, at all?



can you help me with that?

Thanks.
