I've read several texts about this on the web and this site but couldn't solve the issue.I have network-manager-openconnect and network-manager-vpnc plugins installed on Ubuntu 14.04 (for GUI usage). To connect to a Cisco anyconnect VPN server all I have is server IP, username and password. Nothing as "Group" is given. However the "Group" isn't required as credential in openconnect, It's only asked through Cisco compatible VPN (VPNC).

Trying to connect using openconnect, After password submission the GUI encounters error and is closed quickly. Here is the log:

NetworkManager[1039]: <info> Starting VPN service 'openconnect'...
NetworkManager[1039]: <info> VPN service 'openconnect' started (org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.openconnect), PID 8432
NetworkManager[1039]: <info> VPN service 'openconnect' appeared; activating connections

NetworkManager[1039]:    keyfile: updating /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/Cisco Annyconnect
NetworkManager[1039]: <info> VPN service 'openconnect' disappeared

I don't have the secret it mentioned. What's the problem?
