I have installed Cisco VPN on a Windows 8 machine and get the error message 440 driver not installed. I have spent 3 or 4 hours trying to google all over the place to no effect. Cisco have not replied to my emails. I then tried to load Shrew VPN client and that hangs at about 80% through install. Has anybody else  managed to load a VPN client on Win 8 equipment ?

i'm running sonicwall/cisco/f5 vpn clients on win7 virtual machines hosted inside of win8. I haven't tried directly on the win8 install though.

I'm running FortiClient VPN on my Windows 8 PC without any problems. It's an old version (v4.2) too cause I don't like the new v5 interface.

You have to edit some registry files and remove a bunch of random characters from some string which has the name of your network interface in it. I Googled for it and found the solution a few weeks back.

Does Cisco state that they currently support VPN on Windows 8? I thought we were still waiting on an updated client for Win8....

man that Cisco VPN client... Grrrr! Why oh why can't they (MS, the firewall makers etc.) just get some kind of standard IPSEC implementation that works.

When you set it up did you know all the settings ? My company IT guy has sent them to me in a pcf file. I know nothing about setting this up. Any guidance is much appreciated.

FortiClient is a different vendor's product and won't work with Cisco VPN end points. The bottom line here is that Cisco haven't released their compatible app yet, but it can't be far away.
