Take a look at Shrew Soft for a free (and possibly open source) VPN client. I know it works in Windows 7 but I do not know about Windows 8.

If you want a top notch VPN client that will work when the going gets tough, I use NCP Secure Entry on Windows 8 Pro 64-bit. It works a treat. It is not free and not open source, but it is really good. www.ncp-e.com

I can confirm above said - free = ShrewSoft, commercial = NCP. Both are versatile, and able to connect to Cisco and many other (IPSec) devices. No known issues with W8 with both.
