Cisco AnyConnect on Win 8

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...

Not sure on the first part as I don't run Win8, but for the cert you would have to install the cert as a trusted cert (versus just clicking to ignore it). If this is just for a handful of people, no big deal. if this is for a business, guest internet, or dozens/hundreds of users or more, just get the real cert and avoid the headaches.
