VPN licesing issue.

I got a customer purchased 100 VPN client license. Cisco del. a package with secure VPN client CD plus a note stated 100 user license.

My quetion is, one of the client notebook using Windows ME, and according to Cisco, ME require VPN client 3.x.x.

So, is my customer restricted to use only Secure VPN client as del. by package? Or he can download the VPN client 3.x.x as long as he got the license covered?


Re: VPN licesing issue.

I think it is best to contact your sales representative on this one. What I do know however is that when you buy the VPN 3000 Concentrator, it comes with unlimited free client licences. Also, when you buy any Cisco IOS VPN router with VPN hardware acceleration, it comes with an unrestricted license for the Cisco Secure VPN Software which can be downloaded. (

Thank for the infor. According to my Cisco Authorize Distributor, there is no restriction of software version as long as customer holding a valid VPN client license. Well.. I hope so too. :)
