AnyConnect Support for XP, and FTD 6.2.3.2

MauryJ

Hello,

 

We recently had a user bring in a Windows XP laptop that they had been using to connect to our VPN, using the AnyConnect 3.1 client.   After we migrated from a older ASA, to an ASA running FTD 6.2.3.2, that client is no longer able to connect to the VPN, and gets an error message:

 

Connection attempt failed, please try again

 

Reinstalling the 3.1 client doesn't resolve the problem.  Is the 3.1 client not compatible with the current FTD release?   As expected, the 4.x AnyConnect client won't install on XP.

 

Thanks

The VPN headend (ASA or FTD) will always try to upgrade a client who connects with an older version of AnyConnect using the locally stored and configured pkg file.

 

If the client is unable to install and run the current AnyConnect release, then they will be unable to connect to the VPN.

Thank you Marvin, this was very helpful.

Unless skipping the update is enabled in the XML Client Profile.
