I have a customer who is using a Pix firewall for his remote users and has setup a VPN Group and password and sent them all the .pcf file, they do not have to login locally or into a Radius server, just lanch the VPN client and there connected. On the ASA when I setup a Remote connection through the ASDM it asks for a username outside of the VPN Group name and preshare password, so when I connect it asks for a username and password, is there a way on the ASA to just have it like the PIX and connect without asking for a username and password?

Cisco VPN Client Password Storage Configuration

If you have numerous Cisco VPN Clients, it is very hard to remember all       the VPN Client usernames and passwords. In order to store the passwords in the       VPN Client machine, configure the ASA/PIX and the VPN Client as this section       describes.


Use the group-policy attributes command in       global configuration mode:

group-policy VPNusers attributes
  password-storage enable

Cisco VPN Client

Edit the .pcf file and modify these parameters:
