    Hi All,

    Having problems download Cisco VPN Client v5.xx for Windows 7. It say that a Technical Support Services Agreement needs to be associated to your Cisco.com user ID.

    I know that this software is a free download. Does anyone know where to obtain it w/out this jibberish, or hv a copy I can use.

    Thanks.

    If it were a free download, wouldn't it be freely available on Cisco's Web site? As Cisco says on their VPN Client page:

    Hi

    I assumed it was free as we have Cisco inhouse, though setup was before my time here.

    Thanks for info will look further into it.

    Yeah, you'd need that SMARTnet service agreement. The price for a yearly agreement varies by model and support terms, but if you were to get the cheapest one for your VPN device, you'd have access to the download.

    Not sure why they restrict its distribution... but I guess they have their reasons. <shrug>

    If you own a Cisco device with the VPN capabilities, you would have recieved a CD with the device with the client on CD. If you no longer have this contact your reseller, i'm sure they will be able to get it for you.
