Shrew Soft VPN Client Issue on Windows 7 x64 bit OS

Unanswered Question
Jan 5th, 2010

I have a .pcf file that I used with cisco vpn client, which connects successfully. But as Cisco VPN Client does not support x64 bit OS, I am using the Shrew Soft Vpn client, installed on x64 bit Windows 7 OS, and imported the .pcf file, connects successfully as it says tunnel enabled.

But then I cannot RDP into any machines or ping to any of my machines. But then on x32bit OS I installed the Cisco VPN Client and when I connect I can RPD into any of my machines.

So if any one has any solutions, connecting successfully and RDP into any of the machines with Shrew Soft, please let me know, appreciate your help.
