Lee,

Have you configured "Allow Password Storage on Client" on the VPN3000. If yes, could you disable this option and try the VPN Client again to see if the Username/Password is getting stored or not.

Please refer the below URL for additional information on Allow Password Storage on Client Feature.

Re: VPN Client 4.8 - don't want to save username

I think he is just talking about just the username and not the password. Cisco stores the last username used inside each connection profile file. We do not allow password storage via our 3005 but the username is still saved. As far as I am aware there isn't an option to prevent this. At least not one available from the GUI.

Daniel,

Thanks for pointing this out.

If you do not want the Username to be cached, you can reconfigure the Username option in .pcf file with !Username= and this should prevent the Username info from getting cached.

After doing this changes in the file, save it, close your VPN Client software, open it

again, select the connection of the respective pcf file modified, make the connection, disconnect, then connect again and you will see that NO Username is displayed

I had tested this in the lab with 4.0 Version of the VPN Client and and works as expected.

You can change the permissons on the vpnclient.ini file to read only. Users will not be able to make any changes by doing this.

Cheers guys - yes it was just the username i didn't want to save.

I tried setting the username=0 but it didn't work, but i'll try with a "!"

Thanks

Lee,

Thanks for the clarification. Let us know the outcome of your testing. Also, the previous post by Alfred is correct. This is read only. So, the end user can still access the .pcf file and edit this option.
