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 Win7-64 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.

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.

Ive been using mirc for many years and have recently been trying other clients out. So far Ive not really found one that I like and is as functional as mirc. So which client do you use? Would be nice to have a 64-bit version but the only ones Ive found so far arent really up to scratch.
