GNOME – How to Connect to a VPN in GNOME-Shell


I used to be able to choose "connect to vpn" from the network-indicator in Ubuntu but since I've upgraded to Ubuntu 11.10 I'm only using GNOME-Shell and I can't find any way to connect to a VPN from this desktop environment. Shouldn't there be a similar button in GS's network menu? How do I do this from a graphical interface?

I was expecting an entry in the networking menu like in Unity but I needed to add the VPN connection through System Settings->Networking first and then it showed up in the network menu.

To add the VPN, you must click on the "+" button which may be unnoticed.
