Anyconnect certificate password issue

I have VPN access setup on a Small Business RVS4000 and can connect computers to it just fine using QuickVPN.

I have Anyconnect installed on an Android device and when I try to import the certificate I generated from the RVS4000, a password prompt pops up. 

I never specified a password for this certificate.  Is there a default one I can use?  I've tried the user passwords, admin password for the router, admin, password, and even 1234.

The certificate is a .pem file.

Are you sure u didn't specify password? What if you press ok with empty passwd?

Anyconnect certificate password issue

I was looking around and found an internal defect that you cannot see so I am going to paste the inside content for your reference:

AnyConnect does not allow import of PKCS12 bundles with blank passwords


When importing a certificate bundle with a blank password, AnyConnect will indefinitely prompt for the password as if the password was incorrect.


The certificate bundle must have a blank password.


Set a password on the bundle when exporting or creating it, and use that password when importing the bundle into AnyConnect.
