Event Viewer may report the following event:
Event ID: 4284
Received n packet(s) in the clear from IP address which should have been secured. This could be a temporary glitch; if it persists please stop and restart the IPSec Policy Agent service on this machine.
The IP Security (IPSec) driver is receiving broadcast packets from the TCP/IP driver. IPSec is only for unicast traffic and should not be receiving broadcast traffic. The broadcast traffic is not encrypted and causes the IPSec driver to log an event about the packet being in the clear instead of being secured.
