As of now, the AnyConnect SSL VPN client is the only 64bit compatible client.

Hi Andrei,

A 64 bit VPN client you can look in to is the NCP Secure Entry Client-- its IPsec and compatible with Vista and Windows 7.  As Topula mentioned, Cisco is currently offering the AnyConnect as a 64 bit VPN client, however its SSL.  Depends on what you are looking for..

Good luck!

Hi Phillip,

Is this still the case? I followed the link providied and it just leads me to a standard download of 32-bit only.

Any help would be appreciated.

shame on me!

I should not have assumed the latest release would have the same compatibility as the previous release...

Do you mean "should have assumed?"

The latest release does indeed support 64-bit Windows Vista and Windows 7.

OK, looking again at at this time, when you select the latest version ( as of this writing) you will see a link on the page that says "Please check here for latest 64-bit client."  That will lead you to the 64-bit client.

For whatever reason, is the latest version of 64-bit VPN client.  If you select that you can get a 64-bit download.

It is not clear to me if/when will be released as 64-bit.
