We were using ipsec vpn on pix 506e and remote access client were configured with Cisco native vpn client for windows 32 bit. Recently we bought windowns 7 64 bit. Cisco vpn ver 4 and 5 client is not supported.

Is there any way to confiure pix FW in a way where we can use widnows native client to get configured with pix, without configuring cisco vpn client. So windows 7 64 bit users can use.

Shrew Soft client will connect to Cisco IPsec VPNs that don't use supplemental username/password (XAuth) schemes.  Just change the connection from "Mutual PSK+XAuth" to "Mutual PSK" instead.
