 +<WRAP center round important 100%> 
 +Due to the current load in VPN, two more servers were set up in addition to vpn.gwdg.de: ** vpn-b.gwdg.de ** and ** vpn-c.gwdg.de **.  We recommend using one of them. 
 +Please make sure to switch to **vpn.gwdg.de** once in a while since updates will not be delivered while using **vpn-b.gwdg.de** or **vpn-c.gwdg.de**.

-The AnyConnect [[http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Private_Network|VPN]] client is a Java-based application, which establishes a SSL-encrypted tunnel to Cisco ASA 5500 gateways. With this tool communication over otherwise insecure networks like the unencrypted networks like GoeMobile can be secured. 
-Usage of Apple  [[http://www.apple.com/support/bonjour/|Bonjour]] for Windows may cause connection problems with the Cisco AnyConnect client ([[http://support.microsoft.com/kb/970313|KB970313]]). 
 ==== Supported Operating Systems==== ==== Supported Operating Systems====
 AnyConnect supports the following operating systems: AnyConnect supports the following operating systems:
-|Windows:| Windows 7/8 (32-bit & 64-bit), Vista (32-bit & 64-bit)+| Windows:                                | Windows 8/10
