It's nice that you call it a "connection-object" :)
If it were, you would be one happy camper.

How are you going to "press" the buttons (tried Win32::GuiTest ?)???
How are you running the command?
Does Perl "block" if you run, e.g, calc (some executable for that matter, 
something that isn't a "connection-object")?
Give us code, please.

Can you use a different OS? I'm not kidding.
What VPN client are you using?
