"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I did not think much about why, to be honest, I just needed way to make it work. I just followed instructions step by step and it worked.

I use anyconnect and works like a charm on windows 10.

Anyconnect supports both ipsec and SSL configs.
vmichAuthor Commented:
Oh did not know that. I will try the other clients and see if I can connect.

Do you get any error? Check if you have enough SSL licences.

You will most likely need version 5.0.07.0290-kp for 64bit O/S and 5.0.06.0160-k9 for 32bit.
The fix listed below is for Win8 but with the similarities of Win8 and Win10 this may apply.
This fix below has resolved my issues (with the message seen) 100% of the time in multiple environments.

Check what I posted below - perhaps this is your issue?

There is a known issue with the Cisco VPN client and the way it is named in the registry. With the default naming convention of the registry being something Win8 does not like, you will get errors when launching and/or attempting to connect to the VPN.

CISCO VPN CLIENT & WINDOWS 8 (32BIT & 64BIT)

This problem is simple and can be performed even by users with somewhat limited experience. Here are 4 easy-to-follow steps to the solution:

1. Open your Windows Registry Editor by typing regedit in the Run prompt.

2. Browse to the Registry Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CVirtA

3. From the window on the right, select and right-click on DisplayName and choose Modify from the menu. Alternatively, double-click on DisplayName:

4. For Windows 8 32bit (x86) operating systems, change the value data from ‘@oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPNAdapter’ to ‘Cisco Systems VPN Adapter’.
For Windows 8 64bit (x64) operating systems, change the value data from ‘@oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows’ to ‘Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows’ (shown below):
CISCO-VPN-CLIENT-Win8-Error-Fix3.bmp
When done editing the Value data, click on OK and close the Registry Editor.

You can now run the Cisco VPN Client and connect to your VPN network. Changes performed do not require a system restart.
