Can I use the UIC VPN through a Remote Desktop session?

AnyConnect VPN access through Remote Desktop

Unfortunately, AnyConnect VPN connections are not able to be initiated through a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) connection. You will receive an error when attempting to connect. This method of initiating a connection is not possible due to the risk of making the remote machine inaccessible. You must physically access the machine that you want to start an AnyConnect VPN connection on.
