Mac OS X Client Import Error

I am attempting to install and use Cisco VPN Client 4.9.01 for Mac OS X under 10.5.1 (Leopard)

The install seems to go fine, along with application launch. The issue is that importing a PCF file doesn't work. Here are the steps.

1. Select Import.

2. Navigate to PCF file, select.

3. Message "File blah blah foo bar imported successfully."

4. No connection entry appears in the list.

5. Looked in folder, profile is indeed there.

6. Can use client through command line, utilizing correct profile.



(I'm a programmer, completely at the mercy of the Lords of Networking here assembled. Please take mercy on this bit basher by helping me out.)


Re: Mac OS X Client Import Error

You should be able to import a pcf file from a Windows client to your MAC OS X client and copy it to the /etc/CiscoSystemsVPNClient/Profiles directory. There are several features on the Windows client which are not available on the MAC Client. Any keywords within the pcf file related to these features should be ignored by the MAC OSX client.
