Hi guys,

Is there a way to disable the warning generated from using self signed certs?

I would like to make the process as seamless as possible.

We had problem with the above error message with our certificate when we moved to AnyConnect 3.1

We were instructed to request a new one

Also here is the link to Cisco site we were provided that explains the changes in 3.1

IPSec and SSL connections require server  certificates to contain Key Usage attributes of Digital Signature and  Key Encipherment, as well as an Enhanced Key Usage attribute of Server  Authentication or IKE Intermediate. Note that IPSec server certificates  not containing a Key Usage are considered invalid for all Key Usages,  and similarly an IPSec server certificate not containing an Enhanced Key  Usage is considered invalid for all Enhanced Key Usages. 

Link to document

Sadly I dont dable with certificates myself so I'm not really familiar with this.
