IPsec Connection Type

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Connection Types

For each Internet Protocol security (IPsec) rule, you must define to which connection types the rule will be applied. For example, if you specify that a rule to be applied only to remote access connections, then only these connections will match the rule.

Each rule has one connection type setting:

  • All Network Connections. The rule applies to communications sent through any of the network connections that you have configured on the computer.

  • Local Area Network (LAN). The rule only applies to communications sent through LAN connections that you have configured on the computer.

    noteNote
    Wireless connections are treated as local area network connections when polices are created using the IP Security Policy snap-in. If you want to specify that a rule is to be applied to a wireless connection only, you must create a policy using the new Windows Firewall with Advanced Security snap-in.

  • Remote Access. The rule only applies to communications sent through any remote access, virtual private network (VPN) connection, or dial-up connections that you have configured on the computer.
