Windows 7 is certainly out and Juniper has announced EOL for Netscreen remote. With that they stated they would not support any 64 bit OS with a remote VPN client.
I have beenfrantically trying Shrew soft but cannot get past Phase 1 errors. Does anybody have any success stories with this client or any other client for Windows 64 bit OS or MAC OS?
Thanks in advance.

I've installed Shrew on Windows 7 and it works fine. Although I didn't use Shrew's example on how to setup a VPN on my SSG. I just used the credentials from my NetScreen login and it works fine.

this solution is working fine, is you don't want to start the service always manually or with batch, change the device startup method in device manager.
You have to set visible hidden devices, find the Safenet Ipsec Plugin change the startup from system to automatic.
It will works.

So are juniper going to make a VPN client that supports windows 7?
the link below says it is unsupported and they have no plans to make a version that supports winodows 7... why????
will there be some other type of VPN client or are they just not doing it anymore?

Given that Netscreen Remote is EOL (and was an OEM product anyway) the alternatives include Greenbow (www.thegreenbow.com) which works very well for us on all 32bit/64bit versions of Windows through Win7 (exclude XP 64bit). You can get an evaluation license from the site.
The other option for the the branch office SRX is the dynamic vpn client, it's early days for this but hopefully Juniper will continue to develop it into something really compelling.

Shrew VPN client is the best options that you can use in Windows 7 (x64 and x86).
Works with Policy based and routing based VPN.
If you are using ScreenOS SW release 6.3 you can use one Phase 2 and multiple Proxy ID for routing based VPN. On Shrew VPN client you then only add all subentets to which you have to have access.
The other option is that you are using Junos Pulse or Dynamic VPn client on SRX devices.
