A story of having to take drastic action in order to figure out a fairly simple problem.

The issue:

I need to use the company’s VPN to access the servers. I can do literally nothing if I can’t connect to the VPN. One fine Monday morning, I open Cisco AnyConnect, click the button, enter credentials… After the posture assessment, it runs its Hostscan utility for a while and then just goes back to a “Ready to connect” state. I try a couple more times, including trying our secondary connection and nothing. No connection.
