    Question Imported VPN profile doesn't save group password

    Hello! I have a *.pcf file with credentials for connect to Cisco VPN.

    Importing was successful, but when I want to connect - pop-up window requires group password.

    I'm checking that password - it's on place and saved.
    I've found the bug on this issue:, but still can't find the solution. Please help

    Are you able to connect and use the vpn after you enter the group password? I'm having issues importing the pcf into network manager and I'd like to know if it's worth spending more time on that or no.

    Here is what i did:
    - installed Gnome 3 on Ubuntu 13.10
    - added vpnc support
    sudo apt-get install vpnc network-manager-vpnc network-manager-vpnc-gnome
    - copied pcf file from Windows box
    - removed ^M characters from pcf file
    dos2unix -n original.pcf clean.pcf
    - opened Network, pushed the small + button on the bottom left corner, selected VPN in 'Add network Connection' window and then selected clean.pcf file in 'Add Network Connection' window.

    - got an error saying:
    "Cannot import VPN connection
    The file 'clean.pcf' could not be read or does not contain recognized VPN connection information

    Error: unknown error."

    Am I doing something wrong? I even tried importing the conf file created from the pcf file using pcf2vpnc but that did not help either.
    Thank you!
