AnyConnectProfile.xml/tmpl Syntax

Unanswered Question
Feb 17th, 2009


At the end of the AnyConnect web deployment installation, AnyConnect attempts to connect to the gateway listed in my custom profile and fails with the error "Invalid host entry. Please re-enter". I can see that AnyConnect is trying to establish a SSL session with the gateway, and if I type the IP address as opposed to the HostName listed within the .xml I get connected.

The configuration appears simple, i.e.,



Can be an alias used to refer to the host or an FQDN or

IP address. If an FQDN or IP address is used, a

HostAddress is not required.






But the documentation is very ambiguous. Any advice on the correct syntax including any dependency on the profle name would be helpful?

I had this same issue and the answer for me was posted elsewhere on these groups.

Anyconnet client fails to connect on Nov 26, 2009 10:59 AM (Kevin Wu)

Essentially, I was entering my Tunnel Group into the tag. These are not the same thing. Once I removed the entry in the XML, I had no further issues.
