Hi All,


Ever since upgrading to Mavericks, I notice my Cisco AnyConnect VPN client disconnects/reconnects often. Actually it seems to reconnect whenever I try to visit an external web page like I should note that my traffic is using a proxy server (a PAC file, actually).


The error is always the same, beginning with:


TUNNELPROTOCOLDPDMGR_ERROR_NO_DPD_RESPONSE:The secure gateway failed to respond to Dead Peer Detection packets. SSL/CSTP


This just started happening after my Mavericks upgrade. I did not experience this issue on Mountain Lion.


Earlier I thought I had resolved the issue by changing my proxy settings from "Auto Proxy Discovery" to "Automatic Proxy Configuration". But this seems to have only resolved it temporarily.


Google has sparse info on this error. Anyone have the same issues? I'm about to rollback to Mountian Lion.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3), iPad, iMac, iPhone
