Cisco Anyconnect Secure Mobility Client For Mac Free Download

Cisco AnyConnect is the recommended VPN client for Mac. The built-in VPN client for Mac is another option but is more likely to suffer from disconnects.

Overview

Stanford's VPN allows you to connect to Stanford's network as if you were on campus, making access to restricted services possible. To connect to the VPN from your Mac you need to install the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client.

Two types of VPN are available:

  • Default Stanford (split-tunnel). When using Stanford's VPN from home, we generally recommend using the Default Stanford split-tunnel VPN. This routes and encrypts all traffic going to Stanford sites and systems through the Stanford network as if you were on campus. All non-Stanford traffic proceeds to its destination directly.
  • Full Traffic (non-split-tunnel). This encrypts all internet traffic from your computer but may inadvertently block you from using resources on your local network, such as a networked printer at home. If you are traveling or using wi-fi in an untrusted location like a coffee shop or hotel, you may wish to encrypt all of your internet traffic through the Full Traffic non-split-tunnel VPN to provide an additional layer of security.

You can select the type of VPN you want to use each time you connect.

I am having problems with installing the Cisco Anyconnect Client version 4.1.04011-web-deploy-k9 on Windows 10.

Before upgrading to Windows 10 I uninstalled (add / remove programs) the old client.

After upgrade to Windows 10 I want to install the supported version of Anyconnect but this failed. I receive the error:

'The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.'

'Click OK to try again or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'Winsetup-Release-web-deploy.mis' in the box below.'

I am running the installation as Administrator, the installation file is on my local C: drive.

I guess that the removal of the old version was incomplete and that the new installation is trying to remove files and/or registry settings but is missing an uninstallation file.

Event 11714: The older version of Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client cannot be removed.

On the internet I found related topics with the solution to use the Microsoft fix tool. This tool isn't available for Windows 10.

Is there a new fix tool for this or is there an instruction to manual remove all old files and registry settings?
