SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario that occurs in Internet Protocol security (IPsec) communications on Windows Server 2008-based computers or on Windows Vista SP1-based computers:
  • You have several filters on the IPsec Responder (the server side). One filter is a generic filter, and the other filters are more specific and more strict.

    The following code is an example of filters that meet these criteria:
    //Rules added on the server:
    netsh adv consec add rule name="anyToany" endpoint1=any endpoint2=any auth1=computerpsk auth1psk=”Password123456!” action=requestinrequestout
    
    netsh adv consec add rule name="80Toany" endpoint1=any endpoint2=any protocol=tcp port1=80 port2=any auth1=computerpsk auth1psk=”Password123456!” action=requireinrequestout qmsecmethods=ESP:SHA1-AES128,ESP:SHA1-3DES 
    
    netsh adv consec add rule name="anyTo80" endpoint1=any endpoint2=any protocol=tcp port1=any port2=80 auth1=computerpsk auth1psk=”Password123456!” action=requireinrequestout qmsecmethods=ESP:SHA1-AES128,ESP:SHA1-3DES
    
    Note In this example, anyToany is the generic filter, and anyTo80 and 80Toany are the specific filters.
  • You also have only a generic filter on the IPsec Requester (the client-side). The following code is an example of a filter that meets this criterion:
    //Rule added on the client:
    netsh adv consec add rule name="anyToany" endpoint1=any endpoint2=any auth1=computerpsk auth1psk=”Password123456!” action=requestinrequestout
    
In this scenario, if the communication between the client and the server matches both the generic filter and the specific filter, the communication fails.

In these examples, if the client tries to access the Web server on the server by using TCP port 80, the communication fails. This is true even though the communication actually meets the requirement of the generic rule on the server. At the same time, other communications, such as PING commands, from the client to the server work correctly.

To make communications that meet both the generic rule and the specific rules work, the specific filters also have to be added to the clients.
