Windows 7: VPN Client for Win 7 64 bit

VPN Client for Win 7 64 bit

Anyone knows a good alternative to Shrew Soft that works well on Windows 7-64 bit?

I've been using Shrew (2.1.5) for the last couple of months, it works like a charm. Unfortunately, it seems to be the cause of frequent BSODs on my system (see link below), so I had to uninstall it.

That's a bummer, as Shrew is the typical alternative for people with Cisco VPN clients who are stuck without a 64-bit Cisco client and don't have the hardware or ability to run the Cisco Anyconnect which is the only supported Cisco solution for 64-bit.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

There is a newer version of Shrew 2.1.6 beta6, that is supposed to work better with Windows 7. Read the link below to find out about it, there is a link for the download also.

You can also try Surfbouncer > Windows 7 OpenVPN Install

You can also use the Windows 7 version called Agile VPN client, there is a walkthough for setting it up in the link below.
