Dear Experts

I have Cisco VPN anyconnect installed in windows, there is no .pcf file that I can find. I have a mac dual booting. Is there anyway I can get the details from the Windows Cisco install and use them in Mac?

Many thanks

Anyconnect does not use a pcf file? the ipsec client uses a pcf file? to use anyconnect you need to connect to with the pre installed Anyconnect client, and the firewall needs the MAC OSX client loading onto it - basically you need to do this http://www.petenetlive.com/KB/Article/0000406.htm but with the mac package not the linux one :)

AnyConnect does not use a .pcf file, but there is a customizable profile that you can edit and copy over.. C:\ProgramData\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client\Profile\AnyConnectprofile.xml

There are no settings that you need to import. Just install the MAC version of the client and connect to the IP address/FQDN of the vpn server.

You can edit the .xml or use the .tmpl to create the .xml
Being able to add host entries is great. It creates a dropdown list of hosts to select from when you launch the client. then just copy to another machine and you have your whole list of hosts there, too. I've never tried to edit the .xsd and probably no need to.
