Cisco: How To Decrypt The PCF Group Authentication Password

Do you ever get tired of NOT knowing the vpn group authentication password in a pcf file?  I do.  But, here is a way to decrypt those starred out characters.  Its been very handy to me.  Go to the pcf file and open it up in notepad.  C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\VPN Client\Profiles is where the profiles are located.  Find the place where it reads "enc_GroupPwd=".  Highlight the key underneath and copy it.  Paste it into the box in the link below.  Then, hit "decode" and its spits out your key down at the middle of the page.  Easy.
