How do I specify a port range in IPSEC?

    I am trying out IPSEC in Windows 2000 SP4 and need to add a port range of
    400 ports (5001-5400). I do not see a way to do this. Please tell me I
    don't have to manually enter 400 entries.

    Thanks, any help is appreciated!

  2. Unfortunately they can only be added one by one.
    Why though are you wishing to cover that range of ports? Perhaps it might be
    easier to cover the entire subnet or IP address you are on with IPsec
    protection adding any permit filters as required.

    You could script the command line tool to loop through 400 port entries
    agreed though its not an ideal situation particularly as IPsec is not that
    simple to configure and manage in Windows 2000.

    Hope this helps anyway.

    The application we are using opens up a dedicated port per user connection
    so there is no way around having to open such a wide range of ports. This
    tool should be good enough, thanks for the help!
