    Apple has added built-in Cisco IPSEC VPN support in 10.6/SL like it already had on the iphone. Does anyone know of a method of importing a Cisco VPN Client pcf?

    Typically what I do is open the PCF and copy the settings out of that for what I need. You'll notice if you use group authentication that the password is encrypted you can do a quick google search to find a site that will decrypt the group password.

    Another thing to keep in mind too is to make sure your Cisco gear will support the apple vpn client- at my work it required an IOS upgrade on our PIX in order to function properly. If I recall, you need at least v7 on your PIX or an ASA device for it to connect.

    I'm already doing this for my own Mac but I was hoping for a more elegant way of doing this for our supported users.
