    Hi everyone. I am a recent PC-to-Mac convert. I have Cisco VPN Client (IPSec/TCP) on my PC to log into my corporate server. The only thing I had to enter for the set up was (1) host URL (2) account name and (3) VPN password. However, I am having trouble setting up VPN on my MacBook Pro. The VPN set up requires me to enter a "shared secret" which I never had to do before with PC-based VPN. Can the "shared secret" be disabled in Mac? And if not, can anyone show me how to set up VPN on my Mac? Thanks. :confused:

    Maybe you have to decrypt your shared secret (pcf file on windows) by using this : tool
