Is Cisco planning a 64-bit VPN client? New desktops/laptops are shipping with Vista 64-Bit. On running the VPN Client 5.0.1 I get a "not supported on 64-bit" error message.

VPN Client is available for 32-bit Windows Vista. No news yet for 64-bit Windows Vista.

However, Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client is now available for Windows OS including 32-bit and 64-bit Windows Vista. Cisco AnyConnect client supports SSL and DTLS. It does not support IPSec.

You need a valid Service Contract associated with your CCO account to login and download any updates.
