    Symantec Gateway Router 460R, Client VPN for x64 Vista out yet?

    Does anyone have any info on a release date for Vista on Symantec VPN
    Client?

    As far as I know the Symantec client is the only client that will work
    with this particular gateway (unless someone has other information to
    the contrary)...

    If other vpn clients will work, anyone know of any that could be
    tested via trial download for x64 Vista.

    Thanks

    It's not funny and if someone could help you they would.

    On Symantec VPN Client for Vista, I suggest you get in touch with Symantec
    as to when they are going to have a release for Vista, as many vendors are
    in the same position with Vista right now. They are catching up with the
    O/S, just like they did when Win 2k and XP were released.

    I assumed so though.

    I did get in touch, they have no date or no word on whether they will,
    which to me seems ridiculous, as with this gateway, the only ipsec
    client that will work with it is their own software, this puts alot of
    people out in the cold, or forces us to buy a whole new dual wan
    gateway system.

    I'd almost prefer to look for something better, something with SSL VPN
    ability and dual wan, this would eliminate the client based software
    proprietary issue.

    Thanks.. I got in touch with them.. they've basically said there is no
    release date set (dont know if there will be one)..

    This leaves anyone with a Symantec Gateway and Vista client.. out in
    the cold for VPN, as their product only works with the "Symantec VPN
    Client".

    Other clients dont work.. I've even tried NCP for x64 Vista and it
    failed to connect, stating invalid ID in the logs.. typical for this
    router.

    Sorry to hear that, but vendors will catch up with Vista sooner or later,
    because is not going anywhere, and they got to dance with M$.

    Symantec dropping support for Gateway products

    Looks like anyone with a Symantec Gateway Security product is SOL.

    Here's the amazingly arrogant position of Symantec, as found on the Symantec knowledge base:

    Question/Issue:
    Information: Symantec Client VPN support for Microsoft Windows Vista. You are looking to use Symantec Client VPN from machines running Microsoft Windows Vista.



    Symptoms:

    Conditions
    You are looking to use Symantec Client VPN from machines running Microsoft Windows Vista



    Solution:
    Symantec VPN Client does not support Microsoft Windows Vista.

    Symantec has announced an end of life date for the Symantec Gateway Security product line. These products are now in maintainence phase, and new functionality is no longer being added.
    The Symantec Gateway Security appliances accept client VPN connections from other vendors IP/SEC compatible client VPN software. It may be possible to use another vendor's IP/SEC client VPN software to connect.

    Note: Symantec does not test functionality with VPN clients from other vendors.
