How do I disable Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client from booting on startup? I have Ubuntu 11.10 and the VPN client is 2.4.0202. Older instructions noted that at installation time one is asked:

Automatically start the VPN service at boot time [yes]

But when I tried reinstalling the latest version, I wasn't asked this question.

I know I can disable the various scripts in /etc/rc.* by hand but I don't want to accidentally break the manual operation of the program which I still need at times.

FYI, if Cisco's client is giving you trouble, you can instead try openconnect, an open-source vpn client compatible with anyconnect. It has a plugin to integrated it with the gnome network manager. humans-enabled.com/2011/06/… –  Steve B Jan 22 '13 at 16:13
