Default (Cisco) VPN: Client requires Group-ID and -Password

Hey there!

I have some webOS devices here that shall be connected via VPN to the LAN Resources. Since webOS 2.x, the built-in VPN Client offers Cisco Anyconnect Connections or the use of a VPNC Client.

Reading these forums, I learned the Anyconnect is not available on Astaro. So the second option is the VPNC Client. Other webOS Users reported they were able to connect to Cisco devices.

My problem is now: The VPNC Client on the webOS device requires a Group-ID and Group-Password to be entered, and I do not know where these groups should be created. Unfortunately, the Client does not allow to use a certificate, so I would have to use the Group thing besides the User/Password Setup.

Can someone tell me how this works? Is there a way to create Groups for the Cisco Remote Access feature on Astaro or any other options this VPNC client could use?

Thanks for any help.

Astaro doesn't support the group function within the Cisco VPN client.

prevpnc - VPN client for webOS mobile platform - Google Project Hosting. It supports OpenVPN, so you'd be able to use the Astaro SSL remote access type.
