We haven't End of Life (EOL) the 4.8.x and 5.X IPSec VPN Clients yet.

Both IPSec and AnyConnect can be used for remote access on an ASA 5510. From a network administrator perspective, I would take into consideration the following:

"Q. Does Cisco provide a VPN Client for Windows Vista?

A. Cisco VPN Client Version 5 is available for 32-bit Windows Vista. There are no current plans to provide 64-bit support for the Cisco VPN Client but 64-bit support is available for the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client."

Which is better in terms of security depends on who you ask. Googling for "ipsec vs. ssl" turns up a lot of interesting hits.

Thanks for the reply. Do you know any means of massive deployment of IPSec client on workstations (XP, Vista, Windows 7 - all 32-bit)?

MS Active Directory?

Hartharster09,

Have you looked in NCP Secure Enterprise Solution? User data can be imported from existing directory services, including MS Active Directory. It is also compatible with all the operating systems you've listed (and 64 bit). Here is additional information: http://www.ncp-e.com/en/solutions/vpn-products/secure-enterprise-solution/secure-enterprise-management.html

If you want additional information leave me your contact details and I can have NCP contact you.

Hope this helps!
