Responding to AnyConnect Notifications

Responding to AnyConnect Notifications

Responding to Untrusted VPN Server Notifications

The type of Untrusted VPN Server notification displayed depends on the Block Untrusted VPN Server application preference:

  • If enabled, a blocking Untrusted VPN Server! notification displays, choose:
    • Keep Me Safe to keep this setting and this blocking behavior.
    • Change Settings to turn off blocking. After changing the Block Untrusted VPN Server, re-initiate the VPN connection.
  • If not enabled, a nonblocking Untrusted VPN Server! notification displays, choose:
    • Cancel to abort the VPN connection to the untrusted server.
    • Continue to make the connection to the untrusted server; this option is not recommended.
    • View Details to view certificate details and decide whether to import the server certificate into the AnyConnect certificate store for future acceptance and continue the connection.

Ask your administrator whether to tap Yes in response to the following prompts:

  • Another application has requested that AnyConnect create a new connection to host. Do you want to allow this? [Yes | No]
  • Another application has requested that AnyConnect connect to host. Do you want to allow this? [Yes | No]
  • Another application has requested that AnyConnect disconnect the current connection. Do you want to allow this? [Yes | No]
  • Another application has requested that AnyConnect import a certificate bundle to the AnyConnect certificate store. Do you want to allow this? [Yes | No]
  • Another application has requested that AnyConnect import localization files. Do you want to allow this? [Yes | No]
  • Another application has requested that AnyConnect import profiles. Do you want to allow this? [Yes | No]

Responding to MMS Notifications

While an AnyConnect VPN is connected, you are unable to retrieve or send Multimedia (MMS) messages. If attempted and blocked, an MMS notification icon is displayed in the status bar. To acknowledge this notification:

Procedure
    Step 1   Tap the notification icon to view the notification.
    Step 2   Tap the notification to view the service impact.
    Step 3   Check the Do not show this again check box if you no longer want to receive MMS notifications.

    Attention:

    This is a permanent selection. You will not be able to reverse this action in the future.

    Step 4   Tap OK.
