We would like to get a Cisco VPN device 3000 series configuration as a text file to look at the actual configuration, but apparently the interface is not a CLI but a graphical interface or menu driven.

Is there a way to get access to the complete config as a text? And to copy and paste it to a text file?

You can view the complete text file used for configuration within the GUI (Administration/File Management) by cliking VIEW in the actions cloumn of the file you want to view. Have a look at the file named CONFIG ;)

a Cisco VPN 3000 concentrator can also be accessed using telnet/telnet-over-SSL ; you can viwe the entire config from there (as is explained in the config guide )
