To add a computer to the IP Security Monitor console

  1. Create a console containing IP Security Monitor. Or, open a saved console file containing IP Security Monitor.

  2. In the console tree, right-click IP Security Monitor, and then click Add Computer.

  3. In the Add Computer dialog box:

    • For the local computer, click This computer.

    • For a remote computer, click The following computer, and then type the name of the remote computer. Or, click Browse to find it on the network.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure.

  • For information about adding the IP Security Monitor snap-in, see Related Topics.

  • If the IPSec service is not started on the computer that is being monitored, the server icon is displayed as a stopped service. To refresh IP Security Monitor after the IPSec service on that computer have been restarted, right-click the computer and then click Reconnect.

  • IP Security Monitor can be used to monitor IPSec only on computers running Windows XP or a Windows Server 2003 operating system. To monitor IPSec on a computer running Windows 2000, use the IPSecmon command at a Windows 2000 command prompt.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
