  1. enoskype, You are the BEST! I opened the TBGameconfig.ini file you mentioned, and I saw that there was an entry for IKEEXT=1, which is the service I traced as the one causing the problem. I changed the flag to IKEEXT=0 and reran Turboboost, and now I can connect to VPN with IPSec. My problem is solved. Many thanks!!! Steve
  2. Thanks, Cicely. I verified this morning that the service listed as #3 in my original post is the one that is needed. (IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules) After running Turboboost, I went into the Services list and restarted the service. Then I connected to VyprVPN with L2TP/IPSec and it connected normally. From the properties for the service, the service name is IKEEXT. The path to executable is C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs enoskype, I will try what you suggest this evening when I get home from work. Thanks for all your help. Steve
  3. Toppack, Yes, VPN is useful when you're in a hotel or other public access internet. It creates a secure tunnel for you to use. For wifi, it prevents sniffers from intercepting your traffic. However, 128bit encryption is easier to crack than 256bit for the determined hacker. For wired internet connections, it's still useful for anonymizing your connection. If you try a diagnostic service like Gibson Research's (http://www.grc.com) Shields Up!, you can see what computer name the host site sees for you. With VyprVPN turned on, they can't see anything about your direct connection with the ISP. Again, there are the different levels of encryption to use. Regarding Turboboost, it really doesn't have anything to do with whether Turboboost is tested with, or works with, IPSec. I already know that it works with PPTP. The issue is that Turboboost is shutting down the IPSec service on its own, and it is this action that is preventing its use. Unlike the other applications and services that Turboboost lets you configure to turn off, IPSec is being done automatically, and the user cannot override this choice. One final point about Turboboost "working with" something... All Turboboost is doing is shutting down overhead processes. Once it completes, Turboboost is no longer doing anything. So, Turboboost is not directly interfering with the operation of IPSec, it's just automatically shutting it down. I suppose I could manually restart it after Turboboost finishes. I'll have to trace where that is and see how to restart it. Steve
  4. Toppack, I am using a VPN service called VyprVPN from Goldenfrog. It allows for encrypted connections through my ISP to an anonymous server farm, where the actual internet traffic flows. This prevents reverse DNS access to my ISP connection. The basic service offers both PPTP and L2TP/IPSec encryption, the latter being the stronger. I'd like the ability to use either, but right now I can only use PPTP when running Turboboost because it is shutting down IPSec modules on its own, with no user ability to control this. Melvin, What am I supposed to be searching for? I did a search before posting this? The only hits on IPSec were in people's posting of their diagnostics. Steve
  5. Thanks, Cicely. Just to clarify, I'm not getting an error with Turboboost, I'm getting an error when I try to sign into an IPSec VPN after running Turboboost successfully. I noticed that Turboboost is stopping IPSec handling automatically, which is preventing the IPSec authentication from occurring. Will running this program help you to track why these 8 modules are being stopped with no user check boxes to control them? Steve
  6. I am trying to use Turboboost to close unnecessary background tasks to speed up my computer, but it is automatically shutting down services that are required for IPSEC VPN authorization. The 128bit PPTP protocol connects fine, but not the 256bit L2TP IPSec protocol. When I turn off ALL options in either Work or Game mode, there are eight services that still get stopped. These services do not allow for users to choose to stop them. They are: 1. Diagnostic Policy Service 2. Function Discovery Provider Host 3. IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules 4. KtmRm for Distributed Transaction Coordinator 5. Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol Service 6. Telephony 7. Windows Time 8. WinHTTP Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Service I suspect that one or more of #3, #5, and #8 are the culprits stopping VPN from connecting when Turboboost is on. It would be nice if you all can figure out how to keep VPN L2TP IPSec working when Turboboost is on. Thanks, Steve
