Hi Ken

About logging, I've got to look deeper - it's there, I think. What I do see is an indication of a possible intrusion (a flashing red 'X' in the system tray) when I try to ping one of the 192.168.1.x addresses inside the company VPN router. I don't see anything when trying to connect from Remote Desktop, so I think something else is going on.

There's a record of me creating a rule for isakmp protocol port 500, I think, to the Internet-accessible address of the VPN router.

I also see an information record that seems to be wrong - "invalid TCP header length" in a packet, from the machine I'm trying to connect to with Remote Desktop. So it seems that I'm getting through the VPN router - or maybe not - maybe IT is returning the bad stuff, but that doesn't make much sense.

I'm rapidly drowning here - I'll try a google on this condition. Thanks for pushing me that way.

Regards
Vern

Hi Vern -

Thanks, Ken, but I think the VPN itself is getting through - not sure. What is its port?

There are multiple protocols and ports that can be involved with VPN, that's why I just allow the VPN client to send and receive anything to the VPN server.



I'm not actually using a client program, I'm using a security policy in Win2K - I assume there's a difference.

I'm sure there is, but now you're in an area where I have no experience.


Doesn't NPF have some kind of logging capability so that you can see what is being blocked?
