In the Connect to a Workplace window, you would pick the first option that is 'Use my Internet connection (VPN)' unless your company allows you to dial in using a phone line. Then, you need to type in the address in either domain name or IP address, and name the connection in the destination name box and click 'Next'. You could leave all user login info blank if you would feel safe that way in the next window and click 'Create'.
