Windows 7 Cisco VPN Client Change Windows Password

Hello Experts!

I'm in the process of planning a Windows 7 deployment for one of my remote users. I am using the latest Cisco VPN Client (that can run on Windows 7) so they can access our domain but want to know if there will be any complications with my end-user because they are not able to create the VPN tunnel before the log into their computer.

From the top of my head, I am wondering if the end-user will be able to change their password because the Cisco VPN Client currently doesn't support logging into the VPN prior to logging into the computer locally.

Can anyone confirm that my end-user will be able to change their password over the VPN? And also if there is any other issues that I may need to be concerned about that someone had already gone through.

What version? I know at least Version 5 supported the "SBL"  (Start before logon) feature although that one wasn't supported in Vista/7 due to the change in the logon process (GINA vs. Credential Provider). and the AnyConnect should have it as well , (if memory serves me... did find a supporting link....).

Regardless, once the profile is cached, they will use those credentials to log on to the laptop, and then connect to VPN. (Even once their password is changed, they would use the OLD one). Then, authenticate the VPN with the NEW password, and they *should* get notified that "Windows needs their current credentials" from the system tray. They simply follow the instructions to "lock and unlock" the workstation, and the local machine gets the new credentials cached to the current profile.....
