Cisco Vpn client

Please show me the difference between Cisco Secure Vpn client and Cisco Vpn client.


Re: Cisco Vpn client

You will need to configure the Cisco Secure Vpn Client on the client. With the new Cisco Vpn Client, you can pull the config automatically from the VPN server (=pix,concentrator). So when changes are made to the vpn settings on the central vpn servers (eg new internal subnets), the vpn clients are automatically updated. This is one of the advantages of the Cisco VPN Client.

Kind Regards,

Re: Cisco Vpn client

The Cisco Secure VPN client is our original VPN client that is really not worked on anymore and shouldn't be used, it won't be supported forever and if you do run into a bug, it probably won't be fixed.

Our direction as far as VPN clients goes has been the Cisco VPN client for a couple of years now. This is the only client we currently work on and regularly introduce new features to and bug fixes.

If you're thinking about running anything, go with the Cisco VPN client.
