Post VPN Connection w/ SOCKS Proxy


I have a VPN connection configured on both Windows XP and Windows 7 (32 bit) computers. Both computers also have putty SSH's into a separate machine.

Now, if I want to tunnel traffic on either computer through this SSH connection, I can configure an application like Firefox to use a SOCKS5 Proxy with 127.0.0.1 and the correct port.

Question: How may I have the VPN connection use the SSH tunnel as well to connect to the VPN server?

I have looked in the settings, google, and tried the Cisco VPN client and I don't see the option for supporting a SOCKS proxy.

why not use IPsec inside L2TP?

Because the VPN service I must use is PPTP based.
