Configuring Cisco AnyConnect

Note

For versions up to eLux RP 6.5, the eLux package VPN System and the included feature package Cisco AnyConnect must be installed on the devices.

From eLux RP 6.6, the eLux package Cisco AnyConnect must be installed on the devices.

This may require modifications of the image definition file on the web server via ELIAS.

  1. Transfer the root certificate to the devices to /setup/cacerts/ca.If you use the Scout feature Files configured for transfer, specify the destination file with destination path /setup/cacerts/ca.

    Cisco AnyConnect only accepts certificate files in .pem format.

    The certificates that are transferred from the VPN server are stored in /setup/cacerts/client.

  2. In the Scout Console, for the relevant device, open Advanced device configuration > VPN client.Then, in the list-field, select Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client.

  3. Restart the device.The device might require one more restart to activate the VPN configuration data locally.

Configuration file

As an option, you can create an AnyConnect configuration file or copy one from a reference device, and then transfer the file to /setup/elux/.cisco/profile/1 via the Scout feature Files configured for transfer.In the configuration file, you can specify your back-end server address.
