Cisco says this

"The Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client can coexist with the IPSec Cisco VPN Client, but they cannot be used simultaneously."

Im wondering if this is on the user or ASA.

The ASA has to have the PKG file loaded before it will accept AnyConnect connections. Even if the client is already installed on the desktop. Yes both Cisco VPN Client and AnyConnect can be installed on the desktop however establishing a connection concurrently with both product will not work.

You can use VPN client and anyconnect for different users. You can even set groups for each that you can filter to allow what protocol you want to open. Just to let you know that any connect uses ssl and depending on your license, IPsec has more concurrent users than SSL anyconnect. Keep this in mind especially if you are also using the WebVPN.
