10.6: Save Cisco IPSec password in the Keychain
Authored by: frogmella on Aug 28, '09 10:29:12AM
I believe this is defined by policy on the VPN server, and is a deliberate restriction put in by your network administrator. I have the same problem.

One way around this is to install vpnc as an alternative (see this hint, but I haven't tested if this works with Snow Leopard yet.

10.6: Save Cisco IPSec password in the Keychain
Authored by: JaxMyers on Aug 28, '09 12:15:23PM

I've been using Shimo for some time now as an alternative front end to the awful Cisco VPN GUI and it always remembers my password. Maybe I'll just keep using it now that it has been updated for Snow Leopard. I was kind of hoping to avoid installing any 3rd party VPN software and stick with Apple's built in VPN support though. I've noticed that the Leopard Cisco VPN implementation keeps asking me for my password every few hours which is a bit of a pain. Anyways, thanks for the reply.
