Anyconnect Problems form Windows XP or Linux (Ubuntu 12.04)

Hi There,

im setting up the Anyconnect VPN Solution in our Lab enviroment.

It’s still a test but I’m suffering several Problems.

One of them is that connecting without Webbrowers is not working from Windows XP und Linux. Windows 7 works without problems.


Cisco 3945 Router for VPN HUB (IOS c3900e-universalk9-mz.SPA.154-2.T.bin)

Cisco ACS in background for AAA User Authentification

Several Contexts ( ADMIN / User / External Support / ect.)


When Connecting via Webbrowser to my VPN url the Website appear and I can authentificate successfully to the Tacacs.

After that the Automatic download / upgrade of the latest VPN client start und the Client connects successfully ( WIN XP / LINUX / WIN7)

That’s the part that works perfectly!

When I try to connect manually from the Client (Not the Browser) I have some issues:


I have to change the VPN URL to "" and it is working perfectly!

The Client stores the new URL and I’m done.

Win XP:

It will not work.

Error Message: the anyconnect package on the secure gateway could not be located

(Remark: opening from Browser is working!)


It will not work.

Error Message: Connection attempt has timed out.  Please verify Internet connectivity.

(Remark: opening from Browser is working!)

When using Ubuntu I'd try

When using Ubuntu I'd try OpenConnect, the Linux alternative for AnyConnect.
