Re: Is there a 64-bit version of the VPN Client for Vista coming

Hi,

Is a bit of a twist here.

As per Cisco:

Installing the VPN Client on a 64-bit Vista Machine Results in a 1721 Error

Cisco IPSec Client does not support 64-bit. If the user requires 64-bit support, the upgrade path is to use the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client instead, which does support 64-bit. Note that the AnyConnect Client supports only SSL VPN connections (CSCsi26069).

So if you want to go with 64-bit, you need SSL support on the VPN 3000 series and replace all IPSEC connections with SSL.

Please rate if this helped.

Regards,

Daniel

Hi Craig,

You might need to check with Cisco if they provide VPN3000 support for the AnyConnect (as they consider VPN3000 out of life):

What i know for sure is that VPN3000 supports the old Cisco SSL client (which does not have 64-bit support, unfortunately):
