Cisco Jabber on iPhone with Secure Connect is not yet available.  AnyConnect on iOS devices is the VPN solution that is available now for Apple iOS devices.  You can configure the ASA to support AnyConnect now, which will position you to support Secure Connect when its available.

See Administering AnyConnect for Apple iOS Devices:

Vincent  - You meant to say if i want to use Iphone with Jabber it also requires to have Anyconnect to be configured on Iphone.

I need to use Anyconnect first & then use Jabber.

Is that right

With the current release of Cisco Jabber for iPhone, you would need a VPN solution if using it outside the enterprise Wifi network.  AnyConnect is the VPN solution that Cisco has available on the iPhone.

Secure Connect is a built VPN for Cisco Jabber.  However, Secure Connect is not yet available on Cisco Jabber for iPhone (it is available on Cisco Jabber for Android).  If you decide to use AnyConnect now, then you will be well positioned to use Secure Connect when its available on Cisco Jabber for iPhone.  Secure Connect will use the same ASA VPN gateway that is used with AnyConnect.

Where can i find some detail about Secure Connect, is this going to be the new product name for Anyconnect? When will secure connect be available?

New Member

See the Cisco Jabber Secure Connect deployment guide for more details: 

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/voicesw/ps6789/ps7290/ps11678/deployment_guide_c07-697713.html .

Secure Connect is not a new product name for AnyConnect.  Secure Connect is an application feature of Cisco Jabber that provides VPN connectivity to Cisco Jabber.

Secure Connect is already available in Cisco Jabber for Android, and will be available in other Cisco Jabber products in the future.

i have configured & used by Cisco Jaber to connect thorugh my ASA. From jabber i am able to connect to my corporate CCM IP Phone.

But when 2 Cisco Jaber are registered to ASA they are not able to communicate to each other.

The call between 2 Cisco Jabber is not working. Is this the way it works or it should work.

Help me to understand this.

Hello Vincent,

For Cisco Jabber on hand held devices (IPhone/Android)  apart from Wireless and SSL VPN (to register itself to the CUCM/CME  from outside the enterprise Network), Is it possible to do a SIP trunk  from these hand held devices to the CUCM/CME over the Internet ?

Thank you in advance,

Good day !

Hi Mohammed,

Cisco Jabber for Android supports AnyConnect SSL VPN and Secure Connect (built in applcation specific) SSL VPN into the enterprise network.  Cisco Jabber for Android does not yet support CME.  If you're using the native Android VPN client, that may also work, but Cisco will not provide support for any other VPN client besides AnyConnect and Secure Connect.

Cisco Jabber for iPhone supports AnyConnect SSL VPN now, and will support Secure Connect in its next release.  Cisco Jabber for iPhone supports both CUCM and CME.  Again, you can use the native iPhone VPN client, but Cisco will not provide support for any other VPN client.

Unless you are using a VPN wireless router, there is no other supported way to register Cisco Jabber to CUCM/CME when it is outside of the enterprise network.

Cheers,

Hello Vincent,

Thank you so much for the detailed explanation.

I have few more queries as below:

1. For both Any connect and Secure connect  SSL VPN irrespective of the client (IPhone/Android), Do we have to purchase any license on the Cisco ASA to allow SSL VPN i.e SSL VPN Premium User License

2. When you mean " Native VPN client " is it IPSEC VPN ?

3. Can you please explain what is VPN wireless router ? Did you meant to connect to the CUCM/CME through VPN based on Wireless Internet ?

Thank you in advance,

Mohammed Ameen
