I have a couple of 3015 VPN concentrators running 4.72. I now have a bunch of users that are about to migrate to Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit versions). Is there a VPN client that works with my VPM concentrators and Windows 7?

What are my options?

Your best bet is to try one of the newer clients and run it in compatability mode (right click the file and install/run under the "troubleshoot compatability") for Vista x64.

I've also had success using Anyconnect on Windows7 Beta & RTM.

Will AnyConnect work with my old VPN 3015 boxes? Is there any loss of functionality?

The old type ipsec vpn client won't work in vista/win7 64, might be doable in 32-bit. Anyconnect does not support vpn3000, as it is ssl tunneling, only ASA/IOS supports this functionality. There is a freeware vpn client that works with vpn 3000 and windows vista/7 32 and 64 bit, its called Shrewsoft vpn.
