When a user with AnyConnect VPN Client in stalled on their workstation trys to establish VPN connection, using standalone mode, they get the error: "Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client connection attempt failed. Please try again.".

When user attempts VPN connection by going to Web page, it works!

How do we get the AnyConnect VPN Client to work in standalone mode?

Can you post your IOS config?  I've never set up AnyConnect to talk to IOS but it's worked fine with the ASA, and connections directly via the client work fine.

Yes, you are right. There is a new bug that was found in 12.4(24)T4 which breaks connection from standalone AnyConnect client.
