I’ve been doing a bit of work on Nortel Contivity VPN equipment lately and have been running into some mis-information that I hope I could clear up here.
I got a request the other day from a customer who needed VPN access into their company that was running 64bit version of Microsoft Vista. I did some searching and it seemed that a 64bit was available. Various post on Nortel’s site explained one was available and I even found a post on Microsoft’s website that a version was available. But I couldnt find it for download (with a support agreement) anywhere!
So, I called Nortel tech support. Usually just the thought of calling tech support makes be queezy but this call went very well. The support tech told me that a version supposed to be released however there was some delays in development and the client would not be released until October of 2008!!
Bad news for my customer but at least we got a straight answer! Not if Microsoft and Nortel would just update thier websites we all would be a lot happier
