Installing the Cisco Anyconnect software for 32bit and 64bit versions of Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 requires Administrator privileges.
It is recommended that you close all other Windows applications before you begin the installation.
The VPN client is set-up in split tunneling mode, meaning only traffic destined for the University network (IP addresses beginning with 128.233.) will go through the VPN tunnel. All other traffic will go through your existing internet connection.
The VPN Client includes an integrated firewall to protect the VPN Client PC from internet attacks while connected.
If your PC is protected by a firewall (Kerio, ZoneAlarm etc) you may need to adjust it's settings to allow the VPN Client to communicate with the campus VPN server. How this is accomplished will depend on the firewall you have installed.
The ports that Cisco VPN uses are TCP 10,000 , UDP 4500 and UDP 62515.
