Yes, IPSec clients do work with the new VPN; we are running both the
IPsec (vpn.uvm.edu) and the SSLVPN (sslvpn.uvm.edu) services on the
same physical server, so you can use either client.
Most folks prefer the AnyConnect client as it better supports newer
OSes and seems to have fewer issues than the IPSec client; the
exception being the built-in OS X 10.6 client.
