Internet Protocol Numbers

Summary

Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 have the ability to define Internet protocol (IP) packet filters for protocol numbers. IP packet filters are commonly used to restrict traffic in and out of each interface.

More Information

Protocol numbers are used to configure firewalls, routers, and proxy servers. In Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4, Request for Comments [RFC] 791I), the protocol number can be found in the Protocol field of an IP header.

The following section contains a list of currently assigned IP protocol numbers. For more information about this topic (including references), please visit the following Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) Web site: NOTE: The information in this article is subject to change, and is meant only as a reference for you to use when you perform administrative tasks such as IP protocol filtering in Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003.
