Windows 7: VPN client?

VPN client?

Hey guys, i'm a student at RIT, and i've been temporarily assigned to a hotel for my housing. Being a security major, I wish to encrypt all my data. RIT provides access to a Cisco VPN client (as well as pre-configured files in a .PCF format) to students.

My issue is that my main OS is Windows 7 x64, and the Cisco client doesn't support x64. There is no way in hell i'm switching to x86 and having Winblows ignore 8GB of my 12GB of RAM.

So, I ask you: Do you know any open source VPN clients? Do you know any that support .PCF settings? Is there some way to configure the built in client to connect? (I attempted it, but failed).

Attached is SS of the settings.

After this, our RIT account and password are requested (upon connection).

According to VPN Client - Cisco - Cisco Systems you need to use Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client Maintain and Operate Guides - Cisco Systems - any chance the RIT Cisco VPN server(s) support that particular client?

Yep, either the Anywhere client (but your Cisco kit needs to be on compatible firmware) or NCP do a 64bit compatible client Home
