Hi there

I am checking my security event logs this morning and see several failed
attempts to logon on my VPN server.

Logon Failure:
        Reason:         Unknown user name or bad password
        User Name:      Administrator
        Logon Type:     5
        Logon Process:  Advapi  
        Authentication Package: MICROSOFT_AUTHENTICATION_PACKAGE_V1_0
        Workstation Name:       MyMachineName

I have more entries like these but with Logon Type 4 

I tried to check on the logon type at microsoft.com
(http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;299475) but it
does not really tells me a lot.

Can anyone here tell me what these logon types are representing?
