Customer Reviews

Slow App


Compared to the IPSec VPN client inbuilt in apple iPhones the Anyconnect client is very slow bringing up login prompt. Also there is is no longer a group defined so how do you determine a mobile user to a laptop user ? If you don't use split vpn you can't browse Internet especially if you have use 'native proxy' settings for browser. Not really a well thought out app. Using split vpn configuration works fine but isn't that insecure ? No one in a Cisco is giving a clear message on this abit disappointed.

Developer Response

Please contact us at if you still need help with this. Unfortunately we weren't able to reply to you until recently since the ability to reply to App Store feedback for developers is new.

Critical functionality missing


Good to see the up[date but still missing the critical ability to define a proxy for the VPN connection. Without this ability the app is of limited usefullness for anyone in my organisation (90,000+ people).

Less essential but also very useful would be the ability to turn the AnyConnect VPN on and off from the iPhone VPN settings area as one can for PPTP, L2TP and IPSEC VPN connections.

Worked first time but added extra entry


Put in the same details as for the desktop anyconnect client and it worked first time

Only snag was it added another entry named the same as the server address. Both seem to work, it's just a bit confusing.
