Will Cisco AnyConnect Work with PIX 501?

We've previously used Cisco VPN to connect to our PIX 501 using Windows XP, but now I see that Cisco VPN doesn't work with Windows Vista 64 bit.  Since my only option is Cisco's AnyConnect, will AnyConnect work with a PIX 501 or do I have to upgrade my firewall?  If AnyConnect will work with my PIX, is there a way to import settings from the old Cisco VPN software?

Many thanks!

Short answer - no.
AnyConnect requires SSL VPN capability which is absent in the PIX lineup. You need ASA5500 series to support AnyConnect

Hi, Please contact your local cisco partner, and buy asa 5505
You might want to check out an alternative VPN client at http://www.shrew.net/software .  The client can import a CISCO VPN client pcf file so configuration is a cinch!
