Hi,


Why does it seem that there is no documentation on the Cisco site for VPN clients past version 4.6? There are release notes, but no user guides. We recently purchased an ASA, but the CD that came with it had old client versions.


Thanks,

- Steve

Steve,


Yes, are you correct. There is no new documentation for the 4.8, 4.9 and 5.0.00.0340 release other than the text release notes posted with the VPN Client.


The reason is, other than new features to support some newer OS (Vista 32 Bit OS), etc, the configuration steps between 4.6 and 5.0 are the same. So, you should be good to go with the configuration guide from 4.6. If this is a new deployment of VPN Client, I would go through the release notes in detail and be aware of any known issues that may impact your network.


Regards,

Arul
