Unanswered Question
Oct 16th, 2007

I am using Vista with Cisco vpn Client and i receive.

Secure VPN Connection terminated locally by the client

Reason 418: Unable to configure the Firewall software.

The Windows Firewall is already disable and the proble only arrive on Vista computer, not XP. I am using a ASA5510 release ASA 8.0

The problem is for internal support user(in Vista) trying to connect to the different customer outside the network

Most likely the group that you are trying to connect to on the ASA has the integrated firewall feature. This feature is not supported for windows Vista Clients.

You can disable this on the ASA by getting into the group polices:

ASA(config)# group-policy "VPN group name" attributes

ASA(config-group-policy)#client-firewall none

If you have other clients connecting fine and you don�t want to do this change, you can configure a new group for the Vista Clients without the integrated firewall feature.
