I'm trying to setup the SSL VPN portal:

When I connect via HTTPS to the ASA5520 outside interface I get the login prompt and after sucessfly login it takes me directly to the Anyconnect client download (starts Anyconnect immediately) even though in the group policy is configured to not prompt the use to chose the post login and the post login is ste to go to Clientless SSL VPN Portal?

Hi there,

Is the AnyConnect essentials enabled? (show version + show run webvpn)

Is the clientless protocol allowed in the group-policy?

Is the session being landed on the correct connection profile?



Please rate any helpful posts.

Since AnyConnect Essentials is enabled under the webvpn settings, the ASA will not let you access the full WebPortal.

You will need to disabled AnyConnect Essentials in order to have full access.

Let me know.
