Cisco VPN CLient Vs. Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client

Hi,

our company just deployed the new  Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client on our machines.

the problem is that i need to connect to some customers site remotely via VPN and i cannot add any .PCF files to this new client.

All connections are pre-configured in this application and i cannot add any connection.

could any one help or point me at a way to import my old .PCF files into the new client or atleast tell me how to configure a new connection???

below are the required parameters that needs to be configured on my machine in order to connect to the customers site remorely via VPN:

Host (Peer IP):

Group Name:

Group Password:

User Name:

Password:

Thanks in advance

Hi Hassan,

There is no way to import your old PCF to Anyconnect but you'll need to create an Anyconnect profile file and then bundle it into your Anyconnect installer.

Here are the documentation links on how it can be done.

For 2.5:

Creating the profile:

Integrating the profile:

For 3.0:

Hi Hasan,

The Anyconnect works in a different manner than the IPsec client. The PCF files no more exist. XML profile of the users are used for the connection.

You can configure the XML profiles based on the configuration guide provided by Nicolas in the above reply.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Anisha
