Win7 - AnyConnect Client and Cisco VPN Client ?

Unanswered Question
Oct 21st, 2009

Perhaps someone knows;

Can The AnyConnect 2.3.0254 client and the Cisco Ipsec client be installed on the same Win7 machine without conflict ?

Since it's not my machine, It's best to ask advice before trying.

I have this problem too.

Dean, you can have both clients installed on the same machine, I do speak for Windows Vista where I either use Annyconnect client or Cisco VPN client, but have not come across any threads out there indicating conflits warnings in Windows 7.

The Cisco VPN client is supported on the 32bit platform of WIndows 7(NOT the 64bit) so be aware of this. I would suggest you to go over Releas notes for each client and look at opened Caveats to see if there is anything reported pertaining to your question.

True, but not IPSec capabilities, only SSL. AnyConnect seems to be a poor name for a VPN client that cannot connect IPSec.
