I am trying to connect to Universities VPN. I am using Cisco anyconnect.

That is the error I have:

The VPN connection is not allowed via a local proxy. This can be changed
through AnyConnect profile settings.

I have checked Cisco troubleshooting. And modified the file Remote.Access.xml.


Instead of:


When leaving the file after the mods I used sudo chmod 444 Remote.Access.xml to prevent changes, because each time I try to make a connection the file changes back to <ProxySettings>Native</ProxySettings>. What am I doing wrong?

  • If you are having problems connecting with your University's VPN, have you approached the University's IT department for help? – IconDaemon Nov 4 '16 at 15:36
