I've installed Cisco VPN Client to connect with remote desktop and doesnt works. When I try to connect with Remote Desktop it says me:

"Cant connect with remote server...."

If I try with Windows XP and Windows 7 I dont have any problem. I search in the web but I cant found nothing. Could you help me please? Thanks and sorry for my english!

The legacy Cisco VPN client has been deemed "unsupported" by cisco, so they push the Anyconnect client as the supported solution. However, I guess some people have had luck modifying a registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CVirtA and changing the displayname by removing everything and up to %; Then restart the client and try connecting again... good luck.
