Thank you for your fast respond.

I  was unable to come up with export all VPN connection command using just nmlci syntax.
I used this line to export all connection in individual exports:
for x in `nmcli con show |awk '{print $1}'|grep -v NAME`; do echo $x:;nmcli con export $x > $x-VPN.conf ;done

Could you please provide me with syntax using nmlci to export and import all VPN connection currently configured?

Thank you .

OpenConnect itself doesn't have a config file in a defined location.
It just takes arguments on the command line. One of those argument
*can* be a config file, containing more options... but it just looks
where you tell it.

If you're using NetworkManager then that'll be where your configuration
is stored; try 'nmcli con export' or 'nmcli con show'.
