Anyconnet client fails to connect

Hi all,

Having installed AnyConnect client on an ASA5520 running 8.2.1.

The AnyConnect installs fine gets its profiles from the ASA.

In the profile, Ive configured the ASA hostname and IP address as shown below :

                If present, UserGroup will be used in conjunction with
                HostAddress to form a Group based URL.
                NOTE: Group based URL support requires ASA version 8.0.3 or

The problem is that even though I can resolve to the right IP address of the ASA, the

AnyConnect client reports "Invalid host entry, please re-enter".

IF I instead type in the IP address of the ASA, it works.

I would like to have it working with the hostname, as the certificate matches the hostname.

Any help appriciated

If you don't configure a "group-url" on ASA, remote " Company_group" and try again. is not "tunnel-group" on ASA.

Hi Kevin,

Thx for the input - but unfortunately that didnt help.

The AnyConnect client still reports the same error upon start from the start menu.

(Starting from a browser it works fine).

Any other ideas? :)
