VPN Client compatability

Sorry if this is a duplicate, I used the "Ask a question" box and when I clicked submit it said something about a sub category and sent me to lala land....nice forum format...not.


My question:  Can the Cisco IPSec client and Cisco Anyconnect client be installed on the same computer?  We have tried to install the Anyconnect client on a system that already has the IPSec client for a user that needs to connect to a multiple networks.  Seems to have broken the network stack.

Yes, they can both be

Yes, they can both be installed on the same system - I have both on my Windows 7 laptop and either works fine. I routinely connect to multiple remote networks (one at a time) using one or the other, depending on what type of remote access VPN is available.

Depending on the VPN configurations, you can sometimes even have the two separate clients running and connected. That's not a supported situaiton but it is possible. I can vouch that I've done it.
