What is the exact error you get?

 

It is possible to restrict a user to one concurrent session on the VPN. This is what it sounds like is happening. I have seen instances where the old session is stuck on the gateway, and prevents a user from creating a new session. If that is the issue, the administrator of the firewall can clear your old session so you can login.

 

Logging in via the SSL-VPN web portal counts as a session - so if you try to also login using the client and they have set the max concurrent sessions to 1, you will get this error.
