Cisco VPN client on Windows 7 Professional x64. Connection fails.

Hello, we are using Cisco VPN client to access our corporate network.

I have 5 new notebooks Dell Latitude E6410 OS Windows 7 Professional x64, with identical hardware configuration.

I downloaded Cisco VPN Client 5.0.07.440 (64 bit) and installed it on all notebooks. It works fine on 3 notebooks, while on 2 notebooks the VPN connection fails with error:

Secure VPN collection terminated locally by the client.

Reason 403: Unable to contact the security gateway

We use a smartcard for VPN access (etoken from Aladdin)

Here an extract from Cisco log:

It seems the problem is in the certificate, but I verified and Cisco client says it's ok. It's also the only valid certificate in MMC->Certificates->Personal.

Furthermore, also using other smartcard (etokens) of other users it doesn't work.

Any suggestion?

Thanks,

it looks like the client sees the certificate but cannot use it's private key for some reason. It's porbably got smth to do with pki-client, installed on that Windows PCs.
