Push Notification Timout RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having an issue with the app notification only allowing 12-15 seconds before timing out on the VPN client (AnyConnect). Timeout settings have already been set in the ASA to 60 seconds. When I authenticate on the VPN client, I receive notification, if more than 15 seconds has passed and I still hit "Approve," the VPN client tells me to authenticate again.

    I am not seeing this when using Text or Phone methods. Thought this was on the Cisco ASA but I have tried this with a different VPN profile and different authentication method (NOT Microsoft Authenticator) in which the 60 seconds applies. Same configuration and all.

    Anyone else having this issue or have any ideas?

  • This seems similar to an issue we ran into although the symptoms for us also included multiple push notifications being sent to the device. 

    The issue is a know bug on the ASA that last I heard Cisco has no intention on fixing.

    Basically you have 10 seconds to complete the authentication before it will time out and send a retry.  We found the OTP works around this as you get an immediate reply asking for the code and that trips the counter.  Phone calls and push were a mess trying to work out the best experience/ work around.  The timeout settings you can change on the ASA didn't change the experience much although we did manage to get around 30 seconds to complete the push auth.
