I did an install of Vista Build 5536 (pre-RC1) on my Gateway M275 Tablet
yesterday, and then installed the Cisco Beta client on that system.
Installation went smoothly, and I am able to establish a VPN
connection. Nice to see that something works for a change.
The "start VPN client before logon" option that I find useful on
occasion is not yet available in this build. Hopefully Cisco will slip
that feature back in before Vista goes "gold'.
