You need to be using the latest AnyConnect client (2.3.0254), which now supports this functionality. You will also (if I recall correctly) need to enable Split tunneling on the ASA.

Check out the latest release notes:

You should also upgrade to the interim 8.0.4(16) release if you still have problems.

I too am seeing this behavior. I am using the latest client and ASA release.

Here are the details:

AnyConnect version:

ASA version: 8.0(4)

Error received:

Termination reason code 26:

Profile settings do not allow VPN initiation from a remote desktop.

I cannot find any settings in the profile on the ASA that would allow or disallow this behavior.

Please see the 2.3 release notes, table 1:

The default is to allow local users only (LocalUsersOnly) -- but there is a setting to allow remote users as well (AllowRemoteUsers). PROBLEM: There is no information regarding how to enable the non-default settings.
