A PCF file contains the configuration of a client in a virtual private network (VPN) set up by Cisco Systems VPN Client software. It stores various information in .INI format, such as the username and password, along with the tunneling port and Domain Name System (DNS) settings.

More Information

VPN Client software is primarily used by organizations that require a VPN for security purposes, such as businesses and universities. The software is installed on the various computers within the organization in order to connect to the VPN(s).

When a user creates a new configuration in VPN Client and saves it, the application creates a PCF file to store the profile. PCF files are stored in the following directory:

C:\​Program Files\​Cisco Systems\​VPN Client\​Profiles

NOTE: Cisco Systems announced that it was discontinuing the VPN Client program in 2011 and officially dropped support in July 2014.

How to open a PCF file

You can open a PCF file with Cisco Systems VPN Client by selecting Connection entries → Profiles.

Since PCF files are saved in the text INI format, you can also open a PCF file with a plain text editor.
