Cisco VPN client support Microsoft 64 bit Vista version

Unanswered Question
Apr 14th, 2008

The Cisco VPN clients still not support Microsoft 64 bit Vista version yet. Is there any third-party VPN client software can support Microsoft 64 bit Vista version and work fine with Cisco VPN device ( such as PIX, ASA, VPN concentrator … )?

Best Regards,

Jackson Ku

I have read somewhere folks have created 32 bit Virtual machine in their vista x64 platform using vmware and were able to accomplish the task of installing cisco vpn client and connect to their work using the vm machine, other than that I believe cisco anyconnect vpn client would be another option which runs in x64 platform but it is web based SSL driven.

the ssl anyconnect 2.0 client is supported on x64 vista. you need asa 8.0(2) and later.

Steven you are correct, ssl anyconnect requires higher 8.02 code .
