Is it possible, and if so, how do I configure, the anyconnect client to remain connected after a user logs off of windows I know this is an option in some VPNs, such as nortel ipsec. I am using an ASA 5505 running 8.04

You can adjust the frequency of keepalive messages to ensure that an SSL VPN connection through a proxy, firewall, or NAT device remains open, even if the device limits the time that the connection can be idle. Adjusting the frequency also ensures that the client does not disconnect and reconnect when the remote user is not actively running a socket-based application, such as Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Internet Explorer. Following is the example configuration:

hostname(config)# group-policy sales attributes

hostname(config-group-policy)# webvpn

hostname(config-group-webvpn)# svc keepalive 300
