How do I download and install the AnyConnect VPN client?

To download and install the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client:

  1. Go to vpn.fsu.edu*
    *Sponsored Guests or External Vendors should go to vpn.fsu.edu/vendorsupport

  2. Sign in with your FSUID and password
  3. Go to the AnyConnect section and click Start AnyConnect
  4. On the next page, click the Download for... button, which will usually reflect the operating system of your device (e.g., "Download for Windows", etc.)
    • For step-by-step installation instructions for your operating system, click + Instructions to the right of the Download button
    • To install programs on an FSU-owned computer, please consult with your departmental IT support professional
  5. Once installed, a Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client window will come up and indicate that the VPN is "Ready to connect".
    In this window enter the following:
    • For general VPN access, enter vpn.fsu.edu 
    • For department/group-specific VPN profile access, enter vpn.fsu.edu/profilename (e.g., vpn.fsu.edu/erp, etc.) 
  6. Click the Connect button
  7. Enter your FSUID and password in the Username and Password fields, then click OK
  8. You are now connected to the network using the VPN service. 
  9. To sign out of the FSU VPN service, click the Disconnect button in the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client

    NOTE - You can only access one FSU VPN profile at a time. If you need to access a departmental or group-specific VPN profile, you will need to first disconnect from vpn.fsu.edu, change the VPN address to the profile to which you want to connect (e.g., vpn.fsu.edu/erp, etc.), and then click Connect.
