Configure and Launch Android VPN app programatically

Is there a way to have my app configure and launch the Android VPN app?

My app will will use an out-of-band channel to request VPN configuration information from a server.  I would like to use the information to configure then launch the VPN app to establish the connection from my app.


Regards.

Nothing, huh?

No one has any idea how to launch AnyConnect+ from another Android app?

Does anyone have a list of actvities and intent-filters that are in the manifest?

Regards.

OK.  I cracked open the Android apk file and looked at the manifest.  There certainly are many callable activities.  My test app can launch a couple of them.  But, there aren't any descriptions of usage and parameters.  And, the user docs show that you can enable/disable extranal control by other apps.

This is all certainly possible.  I think this is the key. http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/vpn_client/anyconnect/anyconnect25/administration/guide/ac10_admin_mobile_android.html#wp1011562
