My computer ran some sort of update this evening before shutting
Now, trying to connect from home, the VPN icon in my system tray is
gone, and Cisco VPN is missing from the programs on my start menu.
https://sslvpn.uvm.edu stalls out trying to find the right Java
whatever...but downloading and running the installer works until I
get the following error that "the specified account already exists":
Cisco VPN also doesn't show up in the Add/Remove programs list in
I have a Dell laptop, 64-bit, Windows 7.
Don't know if this is a fluke or related to this new client release.
(I used VPN daily from home last week and all was well.)

A new client was made available by Network Services and has been in production for almost 2 weeks. Per request by Network Services, the download sources were updated:
1. Software Archive https://www.uvm.edu/software
2. SCCM Software Center
The current version 3.1.11004 was deployed last week via SCCM and setup to upgrade any previous versions if they exist. There seems to be a discrepancy of the client version when folks are downloading from https://sslvpn.uvm.edu, however Network Services who manages the SSLVPN portal has rectified it and tested. Please let us know if this continues to be an issue.

Subject: An Awkward Update
Early on this morning I was interrupted by a message that the Cisco VPN Service had stopped and that I should "close all sensitive network applications". Fortunately the only thing that happened was ye olde Oracle Calendar closed when it lost it's server connection.
A new version of the Cisco AnyConnect Client is being pushed out and this kills the service whether the VPN client is in use or not.
Could this have been done differently? - Chris
