There is alot of hype on this topic.

At the moment there isn't an 64-bit Windows IPSEC client: The Cisco VPN client supports Windows 2000, XP and Vista (x86/32-bit only); Linux (Intel); Mac OS X 10.4; and Solaris UltraSparc (32 and 64-bit).


The SSL client (Anyconnect) supports 64-bit Vista:


There are rumors Cisco will bring IPSEC support under Anyconnect client (only then it will deserve its name :) ). However, at this time there are no release dates announced.

Please rate if this helped.
