Cisco VPN Client and 64 Bit OS Support

Answered Question
Nov 21st, 2008

I am in the planning/testing stages of migrating users to the Cisco VPN client. Problem I have come across though is I can't find a version that supports 64 bit operating systems. I have looked through the download center with no luck. Am I just over looking a version out there? Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

AFAIK there is no 64-bit support and its not even on the IPSEC VPN Client roadmap. For more details see:

This client works fine for me, just installed it on my Win7 X64 machine, and I am able to connect to all my IOS VPN's.

Thanks for pointing me out, hope Cisco will release a stable version a.s.a.p.

You can also use VPNC (sourceforge) and it doesn't require the installation of a 3rd party firewall like zonealarm which only consumes memory.
