What version of the client are you using when you attempt access using Vista? Also is the VPN requiring firewall? There is not support in Vista client for firewall.

my issue has been resolved.

there is a service called Base Filtering Services running in background for Vista and has to disabled to make IP Sec VPN Client working.

after doing so it works smoothly.
