viscosity very conveniently stored my username and password and i didn't need to remember it. now i'm trying to setup the same vpn config on a different laptop. however, i've forgotten my username and password. is there any way to decrypt the information in the logininfo.xml file?

Hi venkyk,

I'm afraid there is not.

Eric,

How about integrating the username and password in the client configuration file? Is this possible?

Hi Mark,

This wouldn't change anything with how we obfuscate credentials, they're designed so someone can't take your credentials and use them anywhere, I'm afraid this is a trade off between portability and security.
