I have a strange problem with Anyconnect 2.5
In the profile I have specified a hostname for my headend ASA (a single 5540 with 1000 ssl premium, one full client profile, very straight forward config).
When the Anyconnect client runs up and gives me the 'Connect To' list, the hostname appears there as expected. However, If I click 'Select' I get an error 'Invalid host entry, Please re-enter'
If I then click in the box, delete the string as given in the list and type in the IP address of that hostname and click select, it works !
I tried changing the profile to specify the IP address, same result. Fails if i just click select but works if i delete the IP address (which worked in the test above) and retype hostname as was originally in the list, into the connect to box !
Once it is working I can disconnect and reconnect as normal with the manually entered hostname or ip but not the profile populated versions.Of course, as soon as I shut the client down and reload it, i'm back to square one.
I have tried a few different combinations and it seems that whatever entry was populated in the list by the profile will never work, I have to manually type in either the IP or the hostname (the opposite of the profile entry) to get it working.
Anyone seen this behaviour and can suggest a fix/workaround ? I'm at a loss with this one !!
