Yes the AnyConnect client does work with Vista. What problems are you having?

Hi Collin. My ssl vpn works fine with windows xp 32bit platform. However using vista with anyconnect vpn i get the error "unable to process response from ...". Can i confirm if i need to upgrade my asa and asdm to 8.x and 6.x respectively to support vista with anyconnect vpn client? Currently i am using asa 7.x and asdm 5.x. Thks in advance.

The anyconnect platform is only supported on the 8.x ASA Code, so you need to upgrade to 8.x!

For more information please see the compatibility matrix:


For 8.2.x:


I would recommend 8.2.x as this code has more likelihood of GD (General deployment) status as compared to others.

Please rate if helpful.
