Have been using a Cisco PIX 501 for years in a small office to provide VPN access and has worked fantastic.  Using the Cisco VPN client software for access.

Have a couple new machines with Windows 7 64 and the Cisco VPN client software will not install - not compatible.  The onlyl thing I can find is AnyConnect for Windows 7 but says it's only supported by the ASA and not eh PIX IOS.

I am sure I am missing something, just not sure what.  I would prefer to stay with the PIX vs. implementing an ASA to support AnyConnect.  Is there a Cisco VPN client software that supports Windows 7 64?

Found a support case at Cisco that says VPN client supports 64 bit WIndows 7 but a request for the details on version was never responded to.  I have a SmartNet agreement so should be able to download if there really is one.

Thanks for your assistance.
