 +====== Cisco AnyConnect ======
 +
 +The AnyConnect [[http://​de.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Virtual_Private_Network|VPN]] client is a Java-based application,​ which establishes a SSL-encrypted tunnel to Cisco ASA 5500 gateways. With this tool communication over otherwise insecure networks like the unencrypted networks like GoeMobile can be secured.
 +
 +Usage of Apple  [[http://​www.apple.com/​support/​bonjour/​|Bonjour]] for Windows may cause connection problems with the Cisco AnyConnect client ([[http://​support.microsoft.com/​kb/​970313|KB970313]]).
 +==== Supported Operating Systems====
 +
 +AnyConnect supports the following operating systems:
 +
 +|Windows:| Windows 7/8 (32-bit & 64-bit), Vista (32-bit & 64-bit)|
 +|Mac OS:|Mac OS X 10.10 (32-bit & 64-bit)|
 +|Linux (officially supported):​|RHEL 7 Desktop|
 +|Ubuntu 14.04. |Trusty Tar|

 + 3. If the process detects a Java runtime environment capable of Java Web Start the browser will display one or two security requests.
 +After these security requests are granted, the installation process will commence.
 +
 +<WRAP center round tip 60%>
 +Java is not needed for running the application,​ only for installing it!
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +If the current user of the system does not have administrator privileges the administrator privileges will be requested or on Linux systems a
 +terminal with a prompt for the sudo password will be opened.
 +On Linux this will fail when //xterm// is not installed.
 +
 +After the installation the client will start and establish a connection.

 +
 + 4. In modern browsers where Java is deactivated,​ the installation process will stop and an installation file is offered for download.
 +{{ :​en:​services:​network_services:​vpn:​cisco_anyconnect3.png | Manual Installation}}
 +Download the installation file by clicking on the offered link and run the installation manually.
 +After the installation is complete the client will be launched. Enter //​**vpn.gwdg.de**//​ as address for the connection, then click on connect to start the login.
 +
 +{{ :​en:​services:​network_services:​vpn:​cisco_anyconnect4.png | vpn.gwdg.de}}
 +
 +Enter the same username and password as in step 1 and click on //ok// to complete the login.
 +After the login a connection will be established.

 +
 +5. If a installation via Active X is possible and allowed by the user the installation will proceed automatically and a connection will be established.
 +
 +6. After a successful ​ installation the AnyConnect-Client will be shown in the system tray. By right clicking or double clicking the symbol in the tray the VPN can be disconnected.
