Cisco Anyconnect On Chromebook

Posted onby

A while ago, we had an issue with SSL AnyConnect. The issue was encountered on a Cisco Firepower with ASA image (IOS 9.13) and for some reason it only shows up when using Chrome. Any other browser didn’t seem to have this issue; we’ve tested Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Open your quick settings panel by selecting the clock in the corner of the screen. The University VPN network does not support the built-in version of VPN that comes standard with Google Chromebook. See Downloading AnyConnect. Cisco AnyConnect.

The issue

We couldn’t view the normal AnyConnect page. Instead, the page was displayed as:

<html><script>document.location.replace(‘/+CSCOE+/logon.html?tgroup=GROUP’)</script></html>

However, if you paste the URI “/+CSCOE+/logon.html?tgroup=GROUP” manually behind the URL, you will get the correct page.

I have a user (presumably the first of many) who says his chromebook is unable to connect to our Cisco Wi-Fi. We use WPA2-AES and 802.1x. This tends to happen when the chromebook goes to sleep and then it returned to a waking state. All the forums and articles appear to suggest that this is a known.

The solution

The solution was to disable HTTP headers within the webvpn. For this you need to use the CLI. The commands used to resolve this are shown below.

FIREWALL# Configure terminal
FIREWALL(config)# Webvpn
FIREWALL(config-webvpn)# No http-headers
FIREWALL(config-webvpn)#

Afterwards you can see that the page will redirect as usual.

The NMSU Cisco VPN (Virtual Private Network) application establishes a secure connection to our network off-campus. It allows you to perform functions that normally would only be possible while on our network such as file transfer to our web servers (FTP), as well as sending mail without authenticating on our outgoing (SMTP) mail server.

NMSU's Cisco AnyConnect VPN is one of five VPN apps that are available in the Chrome Web Store. Download and configure this app just as you would any other Chrome app. If you are an administrator, you can force install this app using the Admin console. You can also upload a config file if the app allows it. (The app uses the chrome.storage API to read the configuration file and apply it.)
