Cisco VPN client

Hello !

I have a question concerning Cisco vpn client licensing ?

I have setup a vpn on cisco 800 Series.

My question is: Do I have to buy Cisco vpn client to connect to that router or can I use it for free ?

I want to use it Only to connect to that router.

If Yes how can I download the client ?

Do I need a special user account ?


Re: Cisco VPN client

Here's some info, but basically (in your case) you'll have to have a supportcontract or buy the software:

"The Cisco VPN Client is included with all models of Cisco VPN 3000 Series concentrators and Cisco ASA 5500 Series security appliances, and most Cisco PIX 500 security appliances. Customers with Cisco SMARTnet® support contracts and encryption entitlement may download the Cisco VPN Client from the Cisco Software Center at no additional cost. For customers without Cisco SMARTnet support contracts, a media CD containing the client software is available for purchase."

Here's some contact info:

Re: Cisco VPN client

you can download it from as long as there is a valid smartnet (i.e. warranty for the router).
