    Microsoft Win7 and SRV2008, issues with default BFE rules




      We discovered some issues with the Base Filter Engine, a new security feature introduced by Microsoft in Windows 6.x versions (Vista, 7 2008 Rx). Obviously running the BFE service without any specific IPsec polisy will deny any host assessment or compliance scans using McAfee MVM 7.x.


      We found a workaround by creating a IPsec policy object that will enforce trust towards the scan engines IP address(es), but does anyone of you know a more gentle and elegant way to deal with this? Support says "This is a Microsoft issue" which we disagree in.


      Best Regards
