There actually isn't. My understanding is that Google isn't allowing anyone (Cisco or their competitors) access to the Android OS at the level required to get a VPN client to work properly on that platform. I believe Cisco is still working on them but the last I heard, which was a couple of weeks ago, there was no official roadmap for an Android-compatible AnyConnect VPN client. Android does have it's own built-in VPN client but I'm told it uses a non-standard implementation of IPSEC so it currently isn't compatible with Cisco's RA gateway offerings.
Now, I know things change rapidly and I haven't been updated on this issue in the last week or so, so if anyone out there has more-recent info, I'd love to hear about it. We're beginning testing on various models of tablets and would love to see AnyConnect work on an Android.
Thanks Chris for the clarification. I really hope they can work out quick since so many people are waiting here. I googled a little bit and found out there is one application for android "get-a-robot-vpnc" which is reported to be successful in some android phone. But it needs some work to get the application function. We have samsung galaxy and HTC evo. I may try this vpnc application and wait for cisco at the same time.
Have a good one!
Probably known, but I just wanted to mention, that with a rooted android, the right Kernel module, and VPNC from Google Code community, VPN with Cisco concentrators works. Just to get started on Cisco on android :-). I am using it on Galaxy Tab though there is a bug so to get IP working after disconnecting the Wireless connection needs to be reset.
I am using version 0.99. This is the latest downloadable from google code, just do a search, I don't know if I'm allowed to link here.
You'll need the right tun.ko module also, you'll find it over at xda. There you'll find help to go though the whole process too.
I wouldn't worry som much about breaking the phone, but I have no experience with the Evo, just the Galaxy Tab, therefore I cant give you any tips on how to root it either, but I know it is possible. I used z4root myself, but I don't think the Evo i suppported.
