Almost everyday we are getting calls from our remote users that they bought a new 64bit computer and they cannot work remotely because the Cisco VPN client does not support 64bit OS. It seems like Cisco has no plans on creating a VPN Client for 64 bit OS's. You can try to have Cisco change their hearts by opening up a TAC case. Request for them to create a VPN IPsec client support for 64bit. Also refer to BUG ID# CSCsb35984.

Cisco Support number 1 800 553 2447

You can also use a third party VPN Client that supports 64bit OS and it works with cisco.
