Cisco Anyconnect client?

Last Modified: 2014-08-15
HI Experts,

I am hoping you can help guide me.

I will start by saying I am NOT a Cisco person.

In saying that, We are currently using the VPN client The Cisco Anyconnect VPN Client 2.5.  We purchased this in September last year.  This was done prior to my arrival at my current company.

It does not work on Windows 8.1.  When I called Cisco, our support has also expired and they said our devices did as well.  They were just purchased last year?  They said we would have to contact our reseller to renew.

Here is my question so I hope it makes sense.

Do we need to upgrade the switches and this VPN client just to support Windows 8.1?  I am very confused which direction to go to see what we need to purchase and where to support this.  I am not allowed to download it from the portal when logging into my account.

The president of the company is on 8.1 and purchased it on his own :P
