AnyConnect is using SSL VPN, while the legacy client IPsec. You cannot switch between them.

Thank you. Do you know any other VPN client which could be used instead of the legacy one? I tried ShrewSoft, but it only allows a PSK or AES mutual authentication, but what to do if I only have group authentication credentials?

IIRC PSK is "group authentication". Further, you can import the PCF file into Shrew.
But why do you want to switch?

The legacy client does not work on Windows 10
I called "group authentication" the username/password credentials in the legacy client.
PSK is a single string of characters. Are you saying I can derive one from another?

I found how to configure ShrewSoft having the group credentials. The authentication succeeded, but it stucks on "bringing up tunnel ..." phase, so the remote servers are not accessible. I'll post another question.
