AnyConnect for Android?

I noticed a new MobileVPN client was released yesterday.  Although, I don't see an Android version included which I was hoping for.  What are the plans for an Android release if any?

Hi Dave,

There are no current plans\schedule for an Android Anyconnect client. I will also suggest contacting your Cisco Account team and they might be able to provide additional information.

Re: AnyConnect for Android?

Not according to this article:


"All of the components for AnyConnect should be released by June,  although iPhone and Android compatibility should come by the end of the  year, Zambrano said."

Also, Cisco is releasing their own Android tablet which includes an AnyConnect VPN Client:


"The Cisco will release the Cius in limited quanities at the end of 2010, with general availablilty slated for Q1 2011."

So, will the Android AnyConnect VPN Client be available for non-Cisco Android devices?

Re: AnyConnect for Android?

Hello Daniel,

We were pleased to announce that the Cisco AnyConnect Secure  Mobility Client is the first 3rd party (and only SSL) VPN client  available for Samsung Android devices.

Customers may download the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client directly from the Android Market.

Supported Devices:

 Galaxy S model GT-I9000 (Gingerbread Maintenance Release)
 Galaxy S model SC-02B (Gingerbread Maintenance Release)
 Galaxy S II model GT-I9100
 Galaxy S II model SC-02C
 AnyConnect is also supported on Tab 7 running Android 2.3.3+ or Galaxy Tabs 8.9 
and 10.1 running Android 3.0+. (Note - Tab 10.1 support for model GT-P7510 (US)
will be supported after the Samsung TouchWiz MR in approx. Mid-July) Note that the Android images must be official Carrier or Samsung provided versions,
and not home-brew or third-party builds of Android.

The ASA requires an AnyConnect Mobile license (L-ASA-AC-M-55XX=), as  well as either

an AnyConnect Essentials (L-ASA-AC-E-55XX=) or AnyConnect  Premium Clientless SSL VPN

Edition (L-ASA-AC-SSL-YYYY=) license, where  XX is the last two digits of your ASA

model number and YYYY is the  number of simultaneous users. AnyConnect Mobile and

Essentials licenses  are enabled per ASA, there is no per user charge for either of

these  licenses.

And to answer your question, you can also have AC on a rooted Android device. Cisco

AnyConnect for Rooted, runs on most rooted devices running  Android 2.1 or later.

A rooted device is a requirement unless the device  is a supported Samsung device.

Rooting your device could void your device warranty. We do not support rooted devices,

nor do we provide instructions to root your device. If you choose to root your device,

please do so at your own risk.

The AnyConnect client download for Samsung does not work on rooted  devices; you must

use the rooted version of AnyConnect on rooted  devices.

Both a tun.ko module and IP tables are required. AnyConnect displays  an error message

informing you about what is missing when you attempt to establish a VPN.

If the tun.ko module is missing, obtain or build it  for your corresponding device

kernel and place it in the  /data/local/kernel_modules/ directory.
