netctl and pptp vpn

I just migrated to netctl, everything works so far.
Now I wanted to configure my pptp vpn which I need for university stuff.
Until now I always started it by hand:

pon <name>
ip route add default dev ppp0

I would like my laptop to automatically connect to that vpn if i am in a specific network.
My understanding is, that I should create a netctl profile for that pptp vpn, like I created one for my wireless network.
After that I put that profile into the


option of the wireless profile.

At this point I'm lost.
How does the pptp profile have to look and how do I automate the routing?

Re: netctl and pptp vpn

Is any solution available?
My ADSL modem acts as a PPTP server and I need to dial in to connect to the Internet.

It would be really nice to have this integrated into netctl

Re: netctl and pptp vpn

Is it even compatible with Netctl or
should we use another network manager?
