Do you have to connect to your client`s server via VPN and you are running Windows 7 64bit? Let me guess, the VPN clients are not ready for 64 bit like I experienced with Cisco and Checkpoint SecureClient VPN.
So let me describe my workaround:
1) make sure that your CPU supports virtualization
Check it with these tools (AMD and Intel): http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/support/configure-bios.aspx
2) enable Virtualization in your BIOS (if not already done)
3) Download latest Virtual PC from Microsoft and also Windows XP Mode
Make sure that you have deinstalled an older version of Virtual PC
6) Run the VPN client inside the XP Mode Virtual PC Screen
or much cooler: don`t use a separate virtual screen, just run the VPN client by clicking in your program list:
Good post- a lot of ppl are having a difficult time with this. NCP has a W7 64-bit VPN client (http://bit.ly/3ZiMFS)
Currently I am working with latest Checkpoint VPN-Adaptor called “Endpoint Connect” for Win7 64bit and it works fine. No need for me for the workaround described above anymore.
