    VPN Traffic ..

    For some odd reason I keep getting this message over and over ...

    Virtual Private Network traffic has been detected to 200.112.1.242
    Do you want to automatically set a rule to allow VPN communications with this server ??


    Obviously, I select No. But this message continues to pop up ..

    Operating System : Windows XP Home Edition ..
    I also run Freedom which is an all in one package that comes included with my Sympatico Premium Service .. It includes Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Firewall .. I scan my computer with Ewido Anti-Malware (Free version) weekly ... And do the weekly virus scanning etc etc ..

    Everything is updated ... Anyone have any ideas ??

    have you checked to see what application(s) are making the request?

    netstat -b should give you more info. (at least, on xp pro sp2)

    Have you tried to capture it?

    Any rogue processes that you don't recognize?

    Any recent updates to programs that you already use and the application signature may have changed?

    What brand antivirus/firewall/etc?

    "Terra Networks" seems to offer many different services....

    [1] That's the thing Phishpreek80 I can't seem to figure out which application is trying to establish the connection .. That is why I am here asking ..

    [2] I ran the command netstat -b .. Just curious is there anyway for me to save the output other then copying and pasting it into wordpad ??

    [3] I haven't tried to capture it ..

    [4] As for any rogue processes that I don't recognize .. I ran TCPView .. See attachment ..

    [5] Yesterday I updated Adobe Reader .. and that's about it ..

    [6] As for the brand of firewall and antivirus .. That would be Freedom (It comes included with my Sympatico Premium Service .. Sympatico being my I.S.P ) ... Product Version: 5.1.3.36337 which is the lastest.. Latest definitions ...

    Have any more suggestions ??

    Can't you just run the command

    C:\netstat -b >C:\netstat.txt

    Personally I use the process ID command.....

    netstat -aon

    Then match the id to task manager.....

    not familiar with the -b .......yet.....using my 98 machine right now

    Another neat trick is to add an interval to that. If the communication is scheduled (every x minutes, connect to y server and upload z file), then you may not see the communication active.

    netstat -b 2 >> c:\tmp\suspicious.txt

    Does your firewall have logging? Is it enabled?
    Can you filter for that ip address or range of ip addresses and give an idea of how often?
    A lot of host based firewalls also log which application are making the connection? If yours doesn't maybe find a new one?

    Can you enable a firewall elsewhere to block the outbound attempt and log the activity?
    (such as your border device)

    When did it start?

    Have you tried to "roll back" via system restore?

    morganlefay: I also like to match it to process id, that would be

    netstat -ab or netstat -abn

    Is it my imagination ( i haven't used Windows in about three years ), but see these couple lines?

    lsass.exe:824 UDP ULYSSES:4500 *:*
    lsass.exe:824 UDP ULYSSES:isakmp *:*

    Does the lsass.exe process manage isakmp connections? I can't remember. You definately have something up.

    kcore: Good catch. I just noticed it and came to point it out. My eyes were still blurry from waking up when I first tried to look at that .txt file. Now that I have some coffee in me, there it is staring me in the face...
