We can say that October 2009 is the best month for cisco in terms of new introduction like IOS 15, ISR 2nd Generation and the new version of CCIE, Now a windows 7 user face many difficulties in terms of having third party softwares like cisco VPN client so it’s time for Windows 7 and MacOS Snow Leopard to have Cisco VPN Client and Cisco SSL AnyConnect VPN Client versions, available to download.
The Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client provides remote users with secure VPN connections to the Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliance using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol and the Datagram TLS (DTLS) protocol.
AnyConnect provides remote end users with the benefits of a Cisco SSL VPN client, and supports applications and functions unavailable to a clientless, browser-based SSL VPN connection. It runs on Microsoft Windows, Windows Mobile, Linux, and Mac OS X, and supports connections to IPv6 resources over an IPv4 network tunnel. We can configure the security appliance to uninstall AnyConnect from the endpoint after the connection terminates, or it can remain on the remote PC for future SSL VPN connections.
In addition to the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance 5500 Series, Cisco IOS supports AnyConnect.
AnyConnect Client 2.4 runs on the following new platforms:
•Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit). See "System Requirements."
•Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.6.1 (both 32-bit and 64-bit).
