VPN Client Vista 64-bit?

Unanswered Question

As our laptops come with 4Gig and Vista Business 64 bit, we have a problem with our Cisco Pix IPSec firewall. As a temporary kludge, I have installed Cisco VPN 5.0.3 in windows 2000 which I run under VMWare but this is not a feasible solution for our users.

When will we be able to download Cisco IPSec/UDP VPN client for Vista 64 bit?

About time!! I have been waiting on this for a year now for my Windows Vista 64-bit laptop. What the hell is CISCO doing? It should be *much* easier to compile the stupid client code into 64-bit and release it than to pointing users to clumsy server side workarounds!!!

Why is it taking so long to release a 64-bit VPN client? I'm just a user. I have no control over the server setup of my company. The only solution that will work for me is a 64-bit version of the IPsec client.
