SYMPTOMS

You are using an application filter as an extension of the Microsoft Firewall service on a computer that is running Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004 with Service Pack 2. However, some of the application filter events are not triggered.

For example, the following events are not triggered:
  • The fwx_ConnectionTerminating event is not triggered in a custom application filter when a connection is closed.
  • When a remote server uses FTP to connect to an FTP client, only the fwx_Listen event is triggered. The Fwx_Bind_Tcp and fwx_AcceptedConnection events are not triggered.
  • For User Datagram Protocol (UDP) connections, only the fwx_Udp_Destination event is triggered. The fwx_Bind_Udp event is not triggered.
  • The fwx_Connect_Tcp event for secondary outbound connections is not triggered in a custom application filter. However, this event may be triggered for the first outbound connection.
