I've never been able to get kvpnc to work, but the back-end program, vpnc, was very easy to set up and it's something I use almost daily. The man page for it is very detailed and the configuration files are simple to use. Might be exactly what you're looking for.

These you will be able to obtain from the place to which you are connecting; e.g. they aren't the same for every connection.
