Cisco AnyConnect

I have setup VPN to use AnyConnect. Have been through the configuration and verified everything is answered correctly.   When I try to connect I get the message "no assigned address" issue.  Actual message - "The secure gateway has rejected the connection attempt. A new connection attempt to the same or another secure gateway is needed, which requires re-authentication.  The following message was received from the secure gateway: No Assigned Address"

Where have I gone wrong?  I can post the config, but are there any "off the top" ideas?

Did that.  Same results.  I've followed instructions like this to a "T", and still have not had success.

Is this possibly related to Interface-Specific Address Pools?  This is in the Client Addressing section of the VPN profile.
