Hi Craig,

You might need to check with Cisco if they provide VPN3000 support for the AnyConnect (as they consider VPN3000 out of life):

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/vpn_client/anyconnect/anyconnect22/release/notes/anyconnect22rn.html#wp734861

What i know for sure is that VPN3000 supports the old Cisco SSL client (which does not have 64-bit support, unfortunately):

Please rate if this helped.

Hi,

Is a bit of a twist here.

As per Cisco:

Installing the VPN Client on a 64-bit Vista Machine Results in a 1721 Error

Cisco IPSec Client does not support 64-bit. If the user requires 64-bit support, the upgrade path is to use the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client instead, which does support 64-bit. Note that the AnyConnect Client supports only SSL VPN connections (CSCsi26069).

So if you want to go with 64-bit, you need SSL support on the VPN 3000 series and replace all IPSEC connections with SSL.

Please rate if this helped.

Daniel
