Are there any plans to put out a 64-bit vpn client other than AnyConnect? Or am i stuck downgrading machines to 32 bit since I don't control the host vpn hardware and won't be able to use AnyConnect.

My understanding is, you have to use AnyConnect for Vista 64 Bit OS. For VPN Client roadmaps and future plans, I would check with your local sales team and they should be able to help you out.

Yes, I already stated that AnyConnect is the 64-bit solution. I would doubt a sales person will know the tecnical roadmap of whether or not Cisco is going to have a 64-bit vpn client (maybe i am wrong here). Regardless, I just seems compoletely short-side for Cisco not to have a 64-bit vpn client (since that is such a new OS). I have talked to out Cisco reseller (who is also the person that manages the hardware and infrastructure) that we work with and have gotten the same opinion that I am stating here. It would be nice if someone from Cisco would give a valid reason as to why they don't have this and what the real plans are for providing one (since our reseller doesn't know either). If there are no plans, that seems very short-sided and a good reason to pursue other options down the road.
