I have upgraded a Pix 501 to ASA5510. We used Cisco VPN Client Ver to connect the Windows 7 64 PC's to the VPN and Cisco VPN Client Ver 4.0 for the XP Laptops, etc to the PIX.
Now we have the ASA - what software is best to connect these clients to the VPN - Anyconnect  
 Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client 2.0, and what software to connect Android phones and tablets

I would recommend the NCP VPN Client, which you can find on almost all platforms.
You can find it at http://www.ncp-e.com/en.
The client works with a broad range of firewalls, also with Cisco.

by the way, you might as well ignore the anyconnect vpn and use another software which will give you IPSec vpn connection to ASA: i use ShrewSoft VPN client and feel comfortable with it:


hope this helps

NCP Vpn Client will not work with our Android Phones - Samsung and I wanted to use Anyconnect but can't seem to set it up to connect.
I am trying PPTP on the samsung all is set up but still cannot login
Think I have put the correct shared key in

You could try VPNcilla on Android, should work fine in your configuration
