Cisco VPN Client and 64 Bit OS Support

I am in the planning/testing stages of migrating users to the Cisco VPN client. Problem I have come across though is I can't find a version that supports 64 bit operating systems. I have looked through the download center with no luck. Am I just over looking a version out there? Thanks in advance.

AFAIK there is no 64-bit support and its not even on the IPSEC VPN Client roadmap. For more details see:

Re: Cisco VPN Client and 64 Bit OS Support

This client works fine for me, just installed it on my Win7 X64 machine, and I am able to connect to all my IOS VPN's.

Thanks for pointing me out, hope Cisco will release a stable version a.s.a.p.

Re: Cisco VPN Client and 64 Bit OS Support

will come out!!!!

Thanks and Cheers! Kimberly Please remember to rate helpful posts.

You can also use VPNC (sourceforge) and it doesn't require the installation of a 3rd party firewall like zonealarm which only consumes memory.
