How to create a self install of the Cisco VPN Client

July 25, 2007

Thought I’d share this with everyone. Keep in mind this is using the OLD version of the Winzip Self Extractor utility… but it still applies.

This is a way to configure a self-installing Cisco VPN client for your end users. It’s very easy to do and very helpful. The normal install of a Cisco VPN client is quite tedious for some end-users to endure. This process makes a single .exe file and allows you to customize install messages, etc.

Use WinZip Self-Extractor tool

Choose Software Installation Option

Provide ZIP file of VPN Client (Run Winzip ahead to create single archive)

Provide user information (That is only what user will see)

Provide silent install keys.

Provide support information

(I’m not including this image because it contained some work-related info and I didn’t feel like editing it). This is self explanatory.

Be sure to check Unzip automatically

Review final information and accept it.

Final install was created, test it now or skip to the end.

That was easy, wasn’t it?
