Well, you should start with giving us some information, like:
What kind of vpn - OpenVPN, Ipsec, pptp, vpnc... ?
What have you tried, where did it fail?
What client do you use?

Thank you.
Indeed, I don't know! My CentOS desktop has a default VPN connection but it doesn't have properties like as Windows. What kind of those you've said is better and more like as windows? I'm a beginner in linux!!!

But what kind of vpn is it??
Is it L2TP/Ipsec or pptp (which I think are the 2 that comes with Windows, not sure about Win7 though) or is it some other like Cisco vpn, openvpn...?
If you don't know, then start your Windows and post a screenshot of a vpn config window.
