comment How do I create a VPN connection using only the terminal (SSH)?
The link posted in the comment was the best resource (help.ubuntu.com/community/VPNClient#PPTP) and it worked!

Its a PPTP connection, the link you posted seems but it doesnt detail the steps to creating a new PPTP connection (as far as I can see). It would be great if I could launch network-manager via ssh X11 forwarding - but I dont want to install gdm just to do that

Yes I understand that. I trying to do what you have listed in the first bullet point - connect to another VPN Server, from my server. I know all the connection details, I am connected to my server's terminal (via ssh). I trying to find out how to configure the vpn connection via this terminal session.

I dont think so (unless I am misunderstanding). I want my server to connect to VPN, not be a VPN server
