At least Cisco isn't the only one dragging. Ars may earn compensation on sales from links on this site. The AnyConnect client seemed to be flaky at first, though it somehow got more stable lately--not sure why or how. Please have communicate feedback both positive and problems to. It's not ideal, but it works. This is possibly the most useful hint I've ever received from these support forums - if I could vote you 10 stars I would! It seems Cisco is taking advantage of their captive audience, and this and lack of compatibility of a proprietary solution is why I'm never going to use AnyConnect, ever.
Now, cisco does it a little better and charges for concurrent usage. I've tried both letting it auto detect the settings and I've manually entered in my parameters.

Ah, ShrewSoft looks like a great contender, and the type of thing I was looking for when I posted that, and to be told whether I was incorrect, and to rant. I installed the Shrew client, imported my.
There are many tiny companies developing 64 bit drivers for their products and have been for awhile. There are some caveats; in contrast to Microsoft, only pre-shared keys are supported, not certificates, and only a subset of crypto options are supported. They're essentially saying that AnyConnect is the only way 64-bit Windows is going to be supported. You can use Shrew soft from , which is free,and follow the instructions accordingly. The funny thing is, under 64bit Ubuntu 8.
I can't help but wonder if there wasn't some sufficient technical hurdle that made it worthwhile to wait for Win7. Release Notes will be available next week via a link once the download image is selected. Someone linked this here before. After import, I only needed to edit the profile to disable the user login info, as our config uses a group logon that is contained within the pcf. . Thanks for dictating my security policy, Microsoft. This ShrewSoft thing looks pretty cool.
I serious doubt there's a technical issue that is preventing them from developing at 64 bit version of the client. It feels like Cisco is leveraging the forward progress of technology increasing needs for amount of memory in systems that 32-bit can't address to push their solution upon us. I'm in the same boat. It would be two steps backwards from a standards and platform support point of view. I'd rather pay someone else than pay Cisco extortion fees, but free or open source would be best. I am hoping Cisco isn't going to switch their products to being heavily based on licensing for fuctionality - more so than it is now. I completely agree with you.
I might be behind the times here but any advice would be appreciated. Running mine on Vista X64 with no issues. So is there a question here?? At least Cisco isn't the only one dragging. I haven't given up on the Microsoft or Apple clients yet. The Windows version isn't open source, but it is free, and.
Looks like Cisco is trying to lock everyone into a proprietary solution, and then charge more per-user for the privilege. It will import your current Cisco pcf profiles. I know this is a really, really old reply - but I just wanted to say a huge thanks for that link. Is there a version of the client that will install onto Windows 7. Which is kind of interesting and terrifying at the same time Originally posted by Paladin:.
I haven't had a chance to test it myself but it looks like it might be a good thing. With Cisco's might I'm sure they could dish one out in a couple days. I've been using Citrix Web Interface to gain access to work resources from my x64 workstation at home. I have tried compatability mode and running as administrator but to no avail.

I've been running with it for a couple of weeks with no major problems. But then again I don't know that for a fact and it's just speculation. If it can give the option of letting the client toggle split tunneling at will i. However, I was very pleasantly suprised to find that! It's not ideal, but it works. If so, where can I get it? But then again I don't know that for a fact and it's just speculation. They're definitely pushing the client base toward their proprietary AnyConnect.
