PocketCloud and Cisco AnyConnect on-Demand SSL VPN
We are using Cisco AnyConnect for SSL VPN for to our internal network. The VPN works in 2 modes:
1. Always On, which requires user interaction
2. On-Demand, which turns on the VPN when an app attempts to connect to a named host or domain, without any extra user interaction.
Mode 2 works for all apps tested (including other RDP apps) except PocketCloud. The VPN does not "see" PocketCloud trying to connect to a named host. Using Mode 1 (always on), Pocket cloud connects just fine.
We are considering this for a large scale (> 200 Ipads) deployment, and would like it to work with the on-demand option. Debugging tools in this environment are very limited - the VPN client has almost none. Wondering if anyone can explain how the session communication is initiated, in an effort to determine why the VPN does not see this as an "on-demand" request.
I will also open a case with Cisco.
