How do I get firewall in 64-bit VPN client?

Unanswered Question

I have a new laptop with Win7 64-bit.  I've read that the "stateful firewall" is gone in this client (I just downloaded and trid before I posted this).  But, I have a customer that when I connect to, I get the error "Reason 435: Firewall Policy Mismatch".  I never had this problem connecting to this customer with my old XP machine.

How do I satisfy this firewall policy need and/or re-enable the stateful firewall in this win7 64-bit client?  I am running McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7.0i.

Please check the following bug

It was reported on Vista but it applys to win 7 as well.

Here is the workaround listed in the bug.

Either disable the firewall check on for that group on the VPN appliance or clear
a custom DLL check looking for the Microsoft Firewall DLLS or use an
alternative Firewall that is supported on Vista and by the VPN appliance.

CPP pushes will not work for any other Firewalls other then ZoneLabs, if or
when ZoneLabs releases ZoneAlarm for Vista customers can install this to get
CPP support.
