Cisco Anyconnect 2.5.2019

I am having an issue with Cisco Anyconnect 2.5.2019 and being able to ping the local ip address that is assigned to the interface on the hostmachine.So I can ping my localhost address of but not the VNP assigned address of that is assigned to the interface when I connect to the VPN in this network. Once I disconnect from the VPN I can then ping my localhost ( perfectly fine. The issue with not being able to ping the localhost is that I use a security application that launches itself from the browser and uses that locally assigned address of the interface. So it when it is launched it would be something like:

But when it is launched when connected to the VPN it cannot execute until it disconnects from the VPN. Any suggestions?

I have resolved the issue. I had to tell the application to use the loopback address and then it worked like a champ.
