Re: AnyConnect VPN support for MX devices

I hate to be a buzzkill, @DillonofAnch17 but the sales reps have been saying "in the next 6 months" for the last couple of years. It's for reasons beyond their control, but I wouldn't get excited about AnyConnect support until you can start applying AnyConnect licenses to MX devices.

Re: AnyConnect VPN support for MX devices

Thanks for your patience. There is no update on the status and MX is still not supporting Cisco Anyconnect VPN at this time. However, Meraki is making exciting changes on a new beta firmware - 15.x. Please check back with Support periodically for a new feature. 

 

Thanks,

Re: AnyConnect VPN support for MX devices

Where can we read more about new feature of the 15.x firmware?

Re: AnyConnect VPN support for MX devices

how much longer is 15 going to be in beta?  I've been hearing about "the wonderful advancements in firmware 15" for about 6 months.

Re: AnyConnect VPN support for MX devices

@NFL0NRfirmware stays in beta until I think ~10% of users install it, with 15.x incrementing rapidly this will take some time! We run 15.x on our production SDWAN but even with fairly regular updating we have some devices on 15.14, some on 15.15 and some on 15.16 so we aren't contributing much to the % of any of them...

@SLR While at Cisco Live last month I spoke with a few different Meraki employees who have spoken that the MX's will support Anyconnect eventually and it's more of a when and not if. This would be huge if it's going to be available on Beta. I will be watching closer now!

I will believe it when I see it.

Re: AnyConnect VPN support for MX devices

well true, but I like to believe in the good in people.
Since we also asked about this feature about 2 months ago, with the answer "no date", and now Meraki proactively informed us about this, there is maybe more to it than normally.

I believe you´ve managed to get some attention and into the closed beta group. Good luck, please post reply here if you hear something. Thanks

I need in on any beta testing group for anyconnect support as we have been waiting forever since we first installed the devices into our org.

I'm currently on a Cisco training and I got it approved again.
Anyconnect for Meraki is more or less already finished is is getting implemented into the beta now.

Re: AnyConnect VPN support for MX devices

Was told today same thing. I am getting an additional MX through SHI and my account manager was going back and forth with his Meraki point of contact. Then I remembered this thread so I asked him about AnyConnect. He came back and said that he was told AnyConnect is in beta and release should be late spring. Exciting news to say the least.

 

So the real question is: has anyone taken a 4K picture of Big Foot yet?

Re: AnyConnect VPN support for MX devices

You know, I really hope we can hear from some of the beta testers.

 

I need to know if this will let me create multiple VPN user groups and specify split tunnel easily or not. Like, is it AnyConnect AnyConnect? Or is it AnyConnect as an SSL VPN client, but no real changes otherwise?

I'd bet on it being the latter option...

Which is cool. I love dumping all of an end user's traffic out through my client's 10/1 Mbps DSL pipe when they're working from home and streaming music or Youtube.

In which firmware version it will be supported? I'm going to upgrade to 15.27 MX version but it seems still not mentioned... any news about it?

MX250/450 and MX67/68 are the testing platforms on closed beta.

Re: AnyConnect VPN support for MX devices

The version has to be pushed to your device, and the only way that happens is if you get into the closed beta.

Re: AnyConnect VPN support for MX devices

Once enabled by support in the closed beta, is it a all or nothing type of feature or an additional option and you can have mix and match versions of VPN client configs (meraki cloud, AD, Radius, etc)? (apologies in advance if I didn't use the proper terminology).

It's sad that such an expensive device can't do basic functionality. I can throw something like Untangle on some random hardware for free and do that with a single click.

Re: AnyConnect VPN support for MX devices

@Bsalamican you please confirm whether it is simply a proprietary client or allows more flexibility for the actual client VPN function?  From the screenshot posted by @RufTech I am hoping the latter...

Re: AnyConnect VPN support for MX devices

As the name implies... I would assume it is Cisco AnyConnect. Not connect "any" VPN client support.
