Cisco AnyConnect VPN profile - how to export/find settings to use in different VPN client (Shrew Soft VPN Access Manager)

I have installed on my computer Cisco AnyConnect VPN which I downloaded and installed from my place of employment.  All I needed to do to connect was enter in a server address (plus my username/password, of course).  It works fine, except when I disconnect I need to reboot my computer for it to properly get an internet connection again for some reason.

I use a different VPN client for my other place of work.  It's called Shrew Soft, and it works well.  It never has that frustrating side effect of me needing to reboot again after disconnecting.  I'm interested in using this VPN client for the one that is currently setup in Cisco AnyConnect.  The problem is that I'm confused on how to get my settings from Cisco over to Shrew soft -- there are quite a few possible parameter settings and info that I need to fill in -- stuff I don't really know.  Evidently all that information must already be stored in the Cisco setup, but it was already there for me.

I need help on how to get my connection info from Cisco AnyConnect VPN into Shrew Soft.  Also, this happens to be on Windows 7 64-bit, in case that matters.

Any Connect is a SSL VPN client and Shrew is an IPsec VPN client. So I doubt it will work.

ShrewSoft cannot work as a replacement for AnyConnect. As noted above there is a vast difference between a SSL based client (AnyConnect) and an IPSEC based client like Shrewsoft.
I use AnyConnect for connections to many many customers, have been for several years, and I have never had the same issue that you describe.

Not what I was hoping to hear, but thanks to you both for the info.  Is there something else that I could use (free, of course) instead of AnyConnect?

Negative. AnyConnect is the only supported client.
