How do I start a VPN session via the command-line

I have a machine that I have configured to connect to a Cisco VPN network. If I'm sitting in front of the machine, I can use NetworkManager menu in Fedora 16 to connect to it. However, I'd like to initiate the VPN connection via the command-line while logged in from another machine on the same subnet network over SSH.

Is this possible, and if so, how?
