As of now, the AnyConnect SSL VPN client is the only 64bit compatible client.

Hi Andrei,

A 64 bit VPN client you can look in to is the NCP Secure Entry Client-- its IPsec and compatible with Vista and Windows 7.  As Topula mentioned, Cisco is currently offering the AnyConnect as a 64 bit VPN client, however its SSL.  Depends on what you are looking for..

Good luck!

Yo,

From the release notes :

These release notes are for the Cisco VPN Client, Release 5.0.07.0290. The names of the files on the
software download site are:
• vpnclient-win-msi-5.0.07.0290-k9.exe for Windows on x86 (32-bit).
• vpnclient-winx64-msi-5.0.07.0290-k9.exe for Windows on x64 (64-bit).

New Features
VPN Client 5.0.07 features the following:
• Support for Windows 7 on x64 (64-bit). This release, however, does not support WWAN devices
(also called wireless data cards) on Windows 7 x86 (32-bit) and x64.
• Support for Windows Vista on x64.
• Packet LZS compression for x64 VPN Client.
Note that this version does not provide online help.

shame on me!

I should not have assumed the latest release would have the same compatibility as the previous release...

Thanks!

Do you mean "should have assumed?"

The latest release does indeed support 64-bit Windows Vista and Windows 7.

OK, looking again at http://tools.cisco.com/support/downloads/go/Redirect.x?mdfid=281940730 at this time, when you select the latest version (5.0.07.410 as of this writing) you will see a link on the page that says "Please check here for latest 64-bit client."  That will lead you to the 64-bit client.

For whatever reason, 5.0.07.290 is the latest version of 64-bit VPN client.  If you select that you can get a 64-bit download.

It is not clear to me if/when 5.0.07.410 will be released as 64-bit.

Thanks for the follow up Phillip.

The 5.0.07.410 client included a GINA fix which was relevant to 32-bit OS only.  The 5.0.07.290 client is the latest available for 64-bit.
