You’ll notice that you CAN’T change the IKE Policy Name (at the top).

Select your newly ciscovpn VPN Policy and clic edit.
– There you’ll be able to change some settings but you don’t have to.
You’ll notice that here too you CAN’T change the VPN Policy Name (at the top).
You could change the IKE Policy drop down menu, but you may mess things up doing so.

it is usefull when you create a manual policy and don’t use the wizard.
Wich is how I did at the begining and it was fine.
Only Later when I wanted to make a second VPN settings,
I Had some error messages and then gave a shot to the wizard
to realise that it was just as simple as a click.
