Appending a port # to Cisco Anyconnect SSL VPN client

Unanswered Question

I have an SSL VPN currently working on an ASA 5505 with the latest software.  The ASA pushes the AnyConnect VPN Client automatically.  As we have only one public IP address, I had to use it for everything.  I have Outlook Web Access running on 443 and the SSL VPN running on 4443.  The problem I am having is that the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client never remembers the FQDN+port number for future connects.  Users have to start Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client and edit the Connect to field, putting :4443 at the end of the FQDN.  Is there a way to get the client to "remember" the non-standard port number?  I figured it would be easier putting the SSL VPN on a different port rather that Outlook Web Access. 

I have this problem too.

You can configure an AnyConnect XML profile with a host entry that corresponds to the FQDN or IP with the non-standard port appended.  This will then be used to prepopulate the Connect To field.  You can read more about AnyConnect profiles at the link below.
