In today’s article, I’m going to quickly inform you about the Cisco IOS webvpn context configuration mode command named “browser-attribute import”.

CCNAs (like you) use the “browser-attribute import” command to import user-defined browser attributes into a webvpn context.

Below is the command’s syntax:

browser-attribute import device:file

As you can see, the command also uses two arguments device: and file.

device: – This argument (with colon) is used to indicate the storage device on the system.

file – And, this argument is used to indicate the name of file to be imported. By the way, the file name should include the directory location.

Note: If you decide to use the command; it will override any other browser attributes that have already been configured.

Below is an example of the command being used:

Router#configure terminal
Router(config)#webvpn context sslvpn
Router(config-webvpn-context)#browser-attribute import flash:example-attr.xml
Router#copy run start

In the example above, the file named “example-attr.xml” is to be imported from the router’s flash. And, notice that the “browser-attribute import” command is being performed while the router is in webvpn context configuration mode.

And, like with mostly all Cisco IOS commands; you can use the word “no” in front of the command to remove (disable) the configured command; like you see below:

Router(config-webvpn-context)#no browser-attribute import flash:example-attr.xml

By the way, if you decide to use the command, make sure your router(s) is running Cisco IOS 12.4(22)T or higher.

I hope this article was very informative and helped you quickly understand the usage of the browser-attribute import command. If you need to learn more; I suggest you visit my website, were you’ll find the latest information regarding the Cisco CCNA (640-553) Security exam techniques.

To your success,
