Cisco AnyConnect on Win 8
Posted on 2013-01-08
Testing out compatibility and functionality of Win 8 and I've run into an issue with the Cisco AnyConnect client. Cisco told me that I had to upgrade to the latest ver. of the client (3.1.01065) and I've done that.
When I try and VPN using the browser (IE 10), I see the login screen to start the VPN connection and I log in and then it starts to load the anyconnect client and then immediately kicks me back to the login screen (username and pwd is correct).
If I manually download the client and run it from the desktop, I can connect but I get a message saying:
Security Warning: Untrusted VPN Server Certificate.
I click "connect" anyway and it does let me log in. So two questions:
Any idea why when loading from the browser, it lets me log in and then kicks me back out (even after successfully authenticating)?
How do I get rid of the message about the cert? I know I'm using a self signed cert and if I got one from GoDaddy or some other trusted authority, that message would probably go away but I was trying to avoid that...
