AnyConnect | XML

The mostly used VPN software from Cisco is probably Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client and it is a pretty sharp tool. The simple view of client is really impressive and productive.


Whenever I want to connect to my VPN host I will type my VPN host address in the text of VPN client and click connect. Its pretty easy when we are using only one VPN profile. It will remember our last used setting/profile details with it. But when I need to switch to another VPN network, I have to delete the VPN host address and retype the new VPN host address. I have searched in Internet and found how to set the multiple profile in VPN client.

To set multiple profile in Cisco AnyConnect VPN client. We have to add a xml config file with name “Profile.xml”.


The file has to be placed in the following path (Windows):

C:\ProgramData\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\Profile

Profile.xml:

This is a simple example of one VPN host with login.


Profile2.xml:

Another example, in this case, we have two differents VPN hosts.


Profile3.xml:

Here you can modify some variables - ie: auto connect on start, auto update (if you have configured), Timeout, Block Untrusted Servers, ...


Profile4.xml:

In the script above, we can use a Backup Server List - very useful.


Or if you like the easy way, you can download the "VPN Profile Editor" tool and make your own XML custom.
