Windows login credentials not retained using AnyConnect

Unanswered Question

One thing we are noting is that if we are using a machine (someone's home) which has never been on the domain it appears like Windows security is not retained or passed on by the ASA. For example we get in via VPN and try and go to \\server1\folder1 and you get the windows authentication page but which works but you still are locked out of the folders. Same things happens when you go to \\server1\c$.... We can get to secured web sites but again it will always ask for authenticate.

With PPTP once authenticated the security passed on to other systems on the other side so we didn't see this issue.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm not 100% sure that this is the issue:


WebVPN and SSL VPN Client sessions are disconnected after a short period (2-5

sec) after initial session setup.


Cisco ASA running release 7.1.1. This occurs after a long period (40 days

plus) of operation.


The work-around is to reload the ASA until this issue is resolved.

I enabled auto-signon and it appears to retain user credentials after logging into say \\server1\share, then closing the window, and going back to another share with the same valid credentials. The second window opens without asking for user credentials. Is this a feature of AnyConnect or Windows?
