Windows 7: 64-bit Cisco Alternative for Windows 7

64-bit Cisco Alternative for Windows 7

Thanks to some of the advice I saw in another thread here, I got Cisco VPN client installed in 32-bit W7. The problem is I am using 64-bit W7 on my home computer and need to connect to my hosting service to update my Web site and the hosting service makes you go through a Cisco VPN IPSec/UDP client before connecting via FTP.

Anyhow, I asked my host about 64-bit clients, since we know Cisco doesn't make a 64-bit client, and they suggested either NCP or Shrewsoft, neither of which currently works under Windows 7.

I was wondering if anyone else has been able to connect to a Cisco Ipsec firewall using W7 64-bit and what they used. Is it possible at all to use the built-in dial-up networking?

No luck with Shrew it won't connect (I think I've tried every possible combination of properties), NCP does work but that price is pretty steep....guess I'll have to go back to 32bit.

Have you tried running the Cisco client under virtual WinXP mode?

Windows XP VM

I've resorted to using the XP VM with a Cisco client and routing, it's not optimal but it works.

gcstang, how did you get the host to route to XP Mode? What network setting did you use on XP Mode (NAT?)
