Cisco Anyconnect for Android

Last Modified: 2017-03-30
I currently have MS surfaces using Anyconnect to VPN into our domain with no problem, but I've downloaded Anyconnect from Google Play onto my Sumsung tablet and can't get it to connect.  It tells me something about reauthorizing and the last statement is it can't find a license.  Some suggestions would be appreciated.
Watch Question

The  ASA requires an AnyConnect Mobile license (L-ASA-AC-M-55XX=), as well  as either an AnyConnect Essentials (L-ASA-AC-E-55XX=) or AnyConnect  Premium Clientless SSL VPN Edition

Does the router (asa?) have Anyconnect essentials or Premium Clientless license installed?

Do you have a certificate installed on your device?

About User Certificates

In order for you, the AnyConnect user, to authenticate to the secure gateway using a digital certificate, you need a user certificate in the AnyConnect certificate store on your device. User certificates are imported using one of the following methods, as directed by your administrator:
Imported automatically after clicking a hyperlink provided by your administrator in an email or on a web page.
Imported manually by you from the device's file system, from the device's credential storage, or from a network server.
Imported when connecting to a secure gateway that has been configured by your administrator to provide you with a certificate.
Once imported, the certificate can be associated with a particular connection entry or selected automatically during connection establishment to authenticate.
