My Problem: Cisco Anyconnect Client with IOS SSL

Hi Team,

I am trying to setup the Cisco IOS SSL to support Anyconnect client.

Much as I have entered all the required commands, the configuration doesn't work. My IOS is (C2800NM-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.4(22)T.

I would appreciate if any in this team with experience setting up anyconnect with IOS can draw my attention to any caveats.

I have selected the necessary portion of my router config for your review, if necessary.

Many thanks.

Re: My Problem: Cisco Anyconnect Client with IOS SSL

what does not work, specifically? what errors are you seeing? what client are you testing, win-mac-linux?

did you try without the ACL and the NAT?

Re: My Problem: Cisco Anyconnect Client with IOS SSL

Thanks Pedrulesall,

I am testing the Win client.

When I direct my browser to the outside interface of my router (, it only warns me of an unknown certificate, and when I agree to proceed, nothing appears in my browser or I get 'the webpage cannot be found' error depending on the browser in use.

If I access using http, the redirect to https works fine but nothing appears in my browser.

I receive no errors besides the certificate warnings, for which I always proceed affirmatively.

I have also manually installed the anyconnect client on my Vista laptop for testing. When I connect using this client, it only prompts me of an unknown certificate. After accepting to continue, nothing more happens. It remains 'Contacting' forever.

I get a similar outcome even when the ACL is removed.

I hope the information provided above is sufficient. Thanks in advance.
