How to install VPN on Windows 1 Got to software.lbl.gov and download the latest version of Cisco VPN on available for Windows version you are using under the Current Releases section
Cisco recommends that you always use the latest version of the Umbrella roaming security module. The minimum recommended and supported version is 4.8 MR2+. For AnyConnect version functionality below 4.8 MR2, additional steps are required.
Accessing the UA VPN requires use of the Cisco AnyConnect application which can be found in the OIT Software Catalog. Use one of the guides below for further instruction. Upgrade to the latest version of the software for your operating system to ensure the best experience.
There could be problems while connecting to your network after updating your AnyConnect client to the next/ latest version or simply even after a system update. The connection could be restricted only to a particular device in a network, while other devices can connect to the network from their physical and virtual machines easily.
Pascal researched and found that the error, anyconnect was not able to establish a connection to the specified secure gateway is a known problem with Cisco clients before version 4, when these earlier clients are installed on Ubuntu 16.04+. The solution is either to downgrade your Ubuntu, or upgrade your Cisco client. At my university we have upgraded to offering version 4 (anyconnect-predeploy-linux-64-4.3.05017-k9.tar.gz), and this supposedly works with the newer Ubuntus. I did not myself test the new version 4 Anyconnect client with Ubuntus 15.x and 16.x. But I have tested it today (April 27 2017) with my Ubuntu 17.04 system, and it works great.
The problem first appeared when an auto-update to the latest version of Cisco AnyConnect was performed (which is not optional, but happens automatically every time the vpn client is started, so going back to the previous version does not work...). 2b1af7f3a8
