I'm not sure if you're saying you couldn't get hold of the PCF file, or
you weren't sure what information you needed from it... but if the
latter, the network-manager-vpnc GUI allows you to import a PCF file,
and vpnc itself comes with a script in /usr/share/vpnc/pcf2vpnc to
convert a PCF file to a vpnc configuration file.

Hope that helps,
