Things I've learned and suspect I'll forget.
One of my Kali VMs crashed earlier and when I brought it back up and tried to start the Cisco AnyConnect VPN I got the following error:
/opt/cisco/anyconnect# ./bin/vpn connect Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client (version 3.1.05187) . Copyright (c) 2004 - 2013 Cisco Systems, Inc. All Rights Reserved. >> error: VPN Service not available. unable to attach to VPN subsystem!
The problem is that the VPN subsytem needs to be started before launching
The VPN subsytem is started with the
/opt/cisco/anyconnect/bin# ./vpnagentd /opt/cisco/anyconnect/bin# ./vpnui
And after starting
/opt/cisco/anyconnect/bin/vpnagentd, everything works as expected.
