Title:
VPN AnyConnect software updated for better BigSur support
Summary of Work:
			The AnyConnect VPN software offered by the VPN servers for Automatic upgrade for Mac users is now at 4.9.04043, which is the latest version provided by the vendor, and has their best Big Sur (Mac OS 11) support. There continue to be discussions at among people that run VPNs for Mac users that even this version does not work 100% reliably with Big Sur. So the VPN team continues to suggest that if VPN is critical for someone's work, to not upgrade to Big Sur until there is better support in the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client.

Title:
Big Sur and VPN issues
Summary of Work:
		
		
Impacted Audience:
Urbana VPN users with Macs considering upgrading to Big Sur
Impact of Work:
		We have gotten reports that the VPN AnyConnect software that worked with the Big Sur beta that we added to the VPNs and the webstore in October does not always work reliably with the released version of the Big Sur Mac OS.   The VPN team will get an updated version available to Mac OS users as soon as we can, but in the mean time if VPN use is critical for your work, do not upgrade to Big Sur.
