Stopping VPN .PCF Files from being distributed.

Hello all, i was wondering. Is there a way (built in) to the VPN 3000 devices that can stop a .PCF file from being used by another user? For instance, if i create a PCF file to be used for "internal" users and one for "external vendors", and both use the same authentication, and are terminated into the same network (non dmz). How would i prevent the vendor from using the "internal" pcf file? Certificates would not be an option at this time, neither will using any NAC.

Thanks.

Re: Stopping VPN .PCF Files from being distributed.

The VPN Client uses parameters that must be uniquely configured for each remote user of the private network. Together these parameters make up a user profile, which is contained in a profile configuration file (.pcf file).

To avoid distribute preconfigured profiles, remove the configuration files (.pcf files) from the Profiles folder in the vpnclient installer directory.

Any file with a .pcf extension found in this folder is placed in the Profiles directory when the VPN Client is installed.
