I'm trying to VPN into work with a new computer. I get one of two error messages: "Unable to complete connection: Cisco Secure Desktop not installed on the client" or "AnyConnect is not enabled on the VPN server".

Anybody have any suggestions to fix this?

You need to make sure the svc is enabled. The following document describes how to setups anyconnect on an ASA.

The basic commands are:


enable outside

svc enable

Typically, it's because your need to have an AV client installed with the latest virus definitions and/or your Windows personal firewall on.
