Due to the annoying WWAN issues with the old Cisco VPN client (IPsec) I am trying to establish remote access to a LAN behind a Cisco 1803 using Anyconnect and SSL VPN.
But I simply cannot make it work.
I have a Cisco 1803 running IOS Version 12.4(15)T15 and I have tried Anyconnect 3.0 and 2.4 on Windows XP and MacOS 10.5, none of them established a VPN connection to the router, saying not a single word more but "Connection attempt has failed".
At this poibnt I have to accept the self-sigbned certificate in the AnyConnect client. Doing so repeats these messages again five times. Then I hav to accept the certificate in the client a second time (WHY?) Then the router gives these messages:
At this point the Anyconnect client says "Connection attempt failed" and that's all.
So please, any advice how to solve this?
And do I have to install any particular svc.pkg in the flash? As far as I have found out you can install only one client package (how do you server different clients then?). But if I use permanently installed AnyConnect on my client system the installed svc.pkg on the router doesn't matter at all, right?
12.4(15)T does not support Anyconnect in standalone mode, only web-launch (i.e. starting AC from the clientless portal). You need 12.4(20)T or later for standalone mode.
In addition with an untrusted certificate you will run into this bug which is not resolved in 12.4(15)T:
CSCtb73337 AnyConnect does not work with IOS if cert not trusted/name mismatch
In short, if it's possible to upgrade, go to 15.0(1)M7 (or latest 12.4(24)Tx if 15.0 is out of the question)
If you're stuck with 12.4(15)T, only use AC 2.x with weblaunch and make sure the host trusts the router's certificate (create a trustpoint, enroll it, import the certificate on the client into the trusted root store).
