LS2004 confused with removed interfaces?
  Posted by  It Manager  on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 at 12:33:29 PM (EST)
Have posted before, no answers, please bear with me any help would be gr8!

SBS2003; previously used USB ADSL modem & 1 interface, LS was set up to use these 2, i.e. was Dial-up adapter and internal int.

Some time ago we changed to ADSL Eth router, and 2 NIC's on srvr.
Internal NIC=192.168.0.1
External NIC=10.0.0.5 (gway is 10.0.0.2 (LAN int of the router). All works well *except* MSN Zone (i.e. Internet BackGammon...) When I set fw to low, or disable completely, no problems connecting. I opened up a host of ports needed for these apps on "Custom" without success.

What irks me though is that when I check fw logs (for low fw settings), this comes up:

2004/11/24 14:52:59 Intel(R) PRO/1000 CT Network Connection (192.168.0.1) - OUT TCP 207.46.203.45 192.168.0.10 28805
2004/11/24 14:53:00 Dial-up Adapter - IN TCP 207.46.203.45 165.165.165.142 28805
2004/11/24 14:53:00 Dial-up Adapter - IN TCP 207.46.203.45 165.165.165.142 28805
2004/11/24 14:53:00 Intel(R) PRO/1000 CT Network Connection (192.168.0.1) - OUT TCP 207.46.203.45 192.168.0.10 28805
2004/11/24 14:53:00 Intel(R) PRO/1000 CT Network Connection (192.168.0.1) - OUT TCP 207.46.203.45 192.168.0.10 28805

When checking the logs for when I am running on my custom settings, no dropped packets show up (huh?)

1) This *Dial-up Adapter* has been removed already, and does not show up any other place.
2) I have uninstalled LS and installed latest version, no difference.
3) I have uninstalled *and* removed the whole 602software directory from Program files, then re-installed, still the adapter is there.

It is clear that (why???), for some or other reason 602 still sees that interface (and no it is not ticked as an interface anywhere in 602 settings), and is obviously still using it for traffic from 207.46.203.45 (freegames.zone.com), and so this might be the reason why the games don't work?

Also:
1) I am *not* NAT'ing on 602, though even if i do, the above is still the case
2) I am proxying HTTP/FTP on 8080 (as SBS2003 is using 80 already)
3) I am caching, but even if I don't, the above is still the case.

I am about ready to throw 602 in the trash and try something else; please help?

I have been thinking about your problem, and I think you are looking in the wrong places for a solution. Maybe these pointers will help;

2004/11/24 14:53:00 Dial-up Adapter - IN TCP 207.46.203.45 165.165.165.142 28805

According to your setup, 165.165.165.142 is not anything to do with your subnets so why is LS processing it?

You are looking at the logs with FW set to low? But with FW set to low, MS games work?
If this is the case the FW logs won't help, just confuse the situation with the DUA entry.
For the FW logs to help, study them when MS games don't work.

DUAs exist on all PC's at many levels. Any Windows PC accepting incoming connections will have some sort of DUA. Also PPPoE I think is treated as a DUA.

Forget about DUA for now and concentrate on your port openings when FW is set to high or similar.

Don't give up. LS is a fantastic product.

Good Luck, Andy.
