VPN configuration no longer accepting valid server connection address


We use a VPN configuration in our WMS Admin portal.  Today I needed to make an update to our ;ThinOS 9.x' policy and was met with an unfamiliar error message saying:

"Inpout for [VPNOpenConnectServer] does not match the required input validations"

After a bit of troubleshooting it appears that the WMS portal no longer likes the Cisco AnyConnect connection address we use for our VPN.

The name for our connection is /.  E.g.

It previously had this saved successfully, but now if I try typing this name into the "Server" field box for the VPN connection, it will start displaying an error box as soon as I put in the forward slash, saying "Invalid Server Info.  Please enter valid server information".

Has anyone come across this before, or know of a solution to this error?

Thanks.Screenshot 2023-04-17 141331.png

Virtual private networks have risen from obscurity to become the frequently preferred method of linking private networks. Although VPNs became popular because they enabled using the Internet to secure network connections, thereby eliminating the need for expensive dedicated circuits, VPN adoption skyrocketed because the technology also proved relatively simple, reliable and secure.

Considering VPNs foolproof, however, leads to a false sense of security. Following state-sponsored attacks that used compromised VPNs to enable exploitative attacks, organizations received a wakeup call that VPN accounts require close monitoring and safeguarding too.

With proper security practices, VPNs continue to effectively fulfill an essential need reliably and securely connecting remote employees, branch offices, authorized partners and other systems. Yet VPN connection errors continue to inevitably arise.
