So I downloaded Cisco Anyconnect to my Nexus 5x phone. Attempted to connect to my SSLVPN and it fails. I get the below information from debugging. This is the first time I've ever tried to set up an SSLVPN and would love to learn more, I have purchased a book however it doesn't cover setting SSL VPNs up on a router so I may need to purchase another or read more white pages. I'm unsure what the debugging information is telling me or if the issue is related to attempting to connect from my phone. I will attempt to install and test from a laptop later. The router is a CISCO1921/K9. Any information would be great, I have great interest in VPN technologies and would love to learn more.

1 Answer 1


I haven't done this since Anyconnect 2.x and IOS 12.4T so things may have changed, but one of the things I remember is that you need to upload an Anyconnect package (pkg file) to the router. Not sure how it works for Android, since there is no pkg for that platform - it may be sufficient to install e.g. the Windows or Linux version.

See also "AnyConnect: Configure Basic SSLVPN for IOS Router Headend With the Use of CLI" which shows that you may also be missing a VTI interface (cfr. steps 2 & 7 (and step 9 to link the VTI to the Context).

Step 1. Confirm License is Enabled

Step 2. Upload and Install AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client Package on Router

Step 3. Enable the http Server on the Router

Step 4. Generate RSA Keypair and Self-Signed Certificate

Step 5. Configure Local VPN User Accounts

Step 6. Define Address Pool and Split Tunnel Access List to be Used by Clients

Step 7. Configure the Virtual-Template Interface (VTI)

Step 8. Configure WebVPN Gateway

Step 9. Configure WebVPN Context and Group Policy

Step 10 (Optional). Configure a Client Profile

  • Working on purchasing a license now (FL-SSLVPN10-K9=).
