CISCO AnyConnect - URL instead of IP Address

CISCO AnyConnect - URL instead of IP Address

CISCO AnyConnect - URL instead of IP Address

Hi all,
How to replace the Anyconnect Server Address with an URL. For example inseat of typing, use vpn.company.com.

RE: CISCO AnyConnect - URL instead of IP Address

You should use Ivacy VPN for mac. Download vpn for mac by Ivacy and get rid of ip being leaked online and private data breach problems.

RE: CISCO AnyConnect - URL instead of IP Address

I assume that the IP address is just an example, as it is not routable on the Internet.
1. Get an external DNS and point to the IP address, i.e. vpn2.mycompany.net would resolve to <ip address of the anyconnect firewall>
2. Obtain an SSL certificate for vpn2.mycompany.net (example!) and install it on the VPN device, then associate it with the interface/service.

Adam Smith87 it is not what the person is asking. Ivacy VPN is yet another "privacy solution" for individual users. Anyconnect is a user VPN for remote access. Apples vs oranges.

RE: CISCO AnyConnect - URL instead of IP Address


Hi All,
Thanks for your input. @iggsterman can you give me more info? That is exactly what I’m trying to understand.
I have a Cisco ASA that I don’t know where the mycompany.vpn.com is configured.

1- where can I get the external DNS?

2- Where can I get the cert?

From what you are telling me there’s nothing that I have to configure on the ASA for that aside from the cert.

Thanks again

RE: CISCO AnyConnect - URL instead of IP Address

Hello Sparrow4,

1. If you have the domain registered, the registrar will have DNS services.
2. I do not know what country you reside in. In the US I'd try CheapSSLSecurity.com

If the VPN services are already configured and working then no, you won't need to configure anything on the ASA except the certificate.
