Cisco VPN GUI

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Hi, would it be possible to include the option in the Cisco VPN session type to launch the GUI (vpngui.exe) when the connection is made? This puts the Cisco VPN padlock icon in the tasktray which makes it easier to see if a VPN is still connected and to disconnect it. Thanks for your time, and thanks for a great product!

Hi,
Do you know if it's the same command line ?

Its similar, but not quite the same:

/c
Auto-connect
Starts the VPN Client application for the specified connection entry and displays the authentication dialog. If no connection entry is specified, then the VPN Client uses the default connection entry. The c and sc switches are mutually exclusive.
Example: vpngui /c towork
/eraseuserpwd
Erase User Password
Erases the user password saved on the Client PC thereby forcing the VPN Client to prompt for a password.
Example: vpngui /c /eraseuserpwd towork

image
Note imageA connection entry may have been configured with Saved Password to suppress a password prompt when connecting using a batch file. Use the eraseuserpwd option to return to require password input from the console when connecting. You cannot combine this switch with the pwd switch. You may use it only with the /c or the /sc switch.
/user
Username
Specifies a username for authentication. Suppresses the username prompt in authentication dialog. Used with the pwd switch, it suppresses the authentication dialog entirely. Updates the username in the .pcf file. You can use this parameter only with the /c or the /sc switch.
Example: vpngui /c /user robron /pwd siltango towork

image
Note imageIf the name supplied is not valid, the VPN Client displays the authentication dialog on a subsequent authentication request.
/pwd
Password
Specifies a password for authentication. Suppresses the password prompt in authentication dialog. Used with the pwd switch, it suppresses the authentication dialog entirely. Updates the password in the .pcf file during authentication and then clears the password from the .pcf file. You can use this switch only with the /c or the /sc switch.
Example: vpngui /c /user robron /pwd siltango towork

image
Note imageIf the password supplied is not valid, the VPN Client displays the authentication dialog on a subsequent authentication request. After encrypting and using the password for the connection, the VPN Client clears the password in the .pcf file. Using this option on the command line compromises security and is not recommended.
/sd
Silent disconnect
Suppresses connection terminating messages, such as "Your IPSec connection has been terminated." You can use this parameter to improve the automatic connection process. You can use this switch only with the /c or the /sc switch.
Example: vpngui /sd towork

Hello,

Do you know how the VPN can be invoke? Do they offer a command line, SDK or API?

They seems to offer a command line, but the thread is 8 years old, so we would like to have fresh information's on the product.

Best regards,
