Allow PPTP tunnels while connected to Cisco AnyConnect SSL-VPN

Hello all,

I'm currently investigating whether it's possible to allow PPTP tunnels while a user is connected to Cisco AnyConnect SSL-VPN, because this functionality does not seem to be working. the situation is the following:


- The customer has a Cisco 892 ISR router with IOS 15.3.3M4 at the main office.

- The customer connects to this router using Cisco Anyconnect from his home.

- The customer wants to set-up an additional PPTP tunnels to a few other customers, but is unable to as long as the Cisco AnyConnect SSL-VPN tunnel is up.

Is there any way around this? I've already looked into split tunneling and various other options (which is configured, to allow internet access while connected to VPN), but this doesn't provide any option for PPTP (the GRE is likely the problem and the setting that is being blocked).

This is not the case at the main office when he's not connected to SSL-VPN, then he is able to access these tunnels (as he doesn't need SSL-VPN and GRE is allowed in the ACL).



Normally, this shouldn't be a

Normally, this shouldn't be a problem unless the PPTP traffic is being routed across the AnyConnect session and there's a restriction at the other end. What does the AnyConnect client report for secured routes when it's connected?
