Cisco AnyConnect VPN Not Working!

Occasional Contributor

Hi,

 

I am trying to connect to client network using Cisco AnyConnect VPN and after successful authentication I am getting below error message:

 

VPN establishment capability for a remote user is disabled. A VPN connection will not be established.

 

I understand this is a restriction from Cisco server configuration however I support multiple clients and some of them use Cisco server while others use a different software entirely so it doesn't seem reasonable to ask each one of them to update their configuration for my sake alone.

 

I already checked below explained hack however it doesn't work anymore.

Is there anyway on Windows 365 appliance to overcome this? Without this my Windows 365 setup would be useless. Please help!

 

I have created ticket # 27044074 for this issue.

 

Thanks!

Same issue. Found a work around using the OpenConnect-GUI for Windows. It's a few years old. But works.

I got this problem when using Anyconnect in a Hyper-V environment.

This post just resolved the issue.

 

Anyway, it seems Anyconnect doesn't accept a "remote" connection or any suspicious actions that make you not a local user (like Hyper-V).

Root cause of this issue from the support case that was opened was the Cisco client was old, ensure to use the latest Cisco client.
