This client allows connection to the VPN concentrator using a standard web browser. It require a browser with enabled Java or ActiveX. The advantage of this client is that it better communicates from the network behind the firewall (for professionals: uses SSL/TLS instead of IPSec). It also supports 64-bit versions of Windows.

Installation process:

  1. View this page in your browser:

    Enter your personal identification number (eg nov20) in JMENO box and a Unified password in HESLO box.
    In the SKUPINA box, type "vsb". For advanced users, there are other options.

  2. Wait for the SSL VPN client is downloaded to your computer and installed (confirm the installation of necessary). Then a VPN connection is established.
    The connection will be indicated by icon ico.bmp, which is usually in the lower right corner. The browser window can be closed now.

  3. If the installation from the browser fails (eg MS Edge, Firefox - missing add-ons needed for installation), download the application using the AnyConnect VPN link. Then run and install the program.

  4. After work, you must close the VPN connection by double-clicking the icon with ico pulley ico.bmp, which is usually in the lower right corner of the screen, click Disconnect.

  5. To end the VPN connection you can also use the Disconnect button on the Connection tab.

  6. When you first start the AnyConnect VPN client from a browser, client remains installed on your computer for future use. Its next start is possible not only the previously described procedure from the browser, but also from the Start menu → Programs → Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client.
