VPN AnyConnect Client and Win8

Unanswered Question
Jan 17th, 2013

Hi, I'm a bit new to firewalls, so still trying to get to grips with it. I need to connect to an ASA 5510 with asa825-k8.

We currently can connect to it with a normal IPsec VPN client. I tried using Anyconnect client, version anyconnect-win-3.1.01065-pre-deploy-k9, but the connection fails.

My question is this: If using IPsec to connect to the ASA ( as opposed to SSL) does the config on the ASA need to be amended to be able to accept the proposals from the AnyConnect client?

I have this problem too.

yes you will need to do some changes in your config, in short VPN client is client for IPSEC VPN for ASA, while Anyconnect is SSL VPN client for ASA.

Here is a Cisco document on how to configure SSL VPN on ASA, in case you need it:

Hi,

thanks for the response. I realise that ssl vpn ipsec vpn are different. anyconnect support ipsec connections in addition to ssl vpn, right? so, if iusing the anyconnect for ipsec vpn instead of ssl vpn, does the existing, working ipsec vpn need to be amended to accept ipsec vpn when using anyconnect client?

I think you missunderstood, they are different, you will need to use cisco vpn client for ipsec vpn and anyconnect for ssl vpn, you can't use anyconnect for ipsec vpn.
