Re: VPN and XP $5 Question - a little off topic?

Hmmm for some reason I thought that the vpn (since it is its own virtual 
adapter which you can enable or disable the firewall on) precludes the external 
adapter and its firewall from interfering with 2 way communications.

I can map a drive to my workstation at home from work (because it is VPNd 
currently). The firewall is enabled on my box at home, but once it is VPNd I 
can pretty much treat it like a box on my network mapping drives with its 
internal addres...

Seems to me that exchange SHOULD be able to speak to it as well...

Any thoughts on this?

Actually, ICF is "tweakable" and I personally find it to be less intrusive
and more reliable than Zone Alarm.
The problem in this case for either of them is allowing inbound connections
to Outlook via RPC.

I agree Jim.

The XP firewall is on or off. No tweaking available. My suggestion is to
turn it off and use something else like Zone Alarm that can be configured.
