IKE and AuthIP Service Initialization
Applies To: Windows Server 2008
The IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules (IKEEXT) service must be running for Internet Protocol security (IPsec) to provide authentication and encryption services. This service implements the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) and Authenticated Internet Protocol (AuthIP) protocols. These keying modules support the authentication and key exchange features required by Internet Protocol security (IPsec).
When appropriate auditing events are enabled (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=92666), Windows reports successes and failures in starting the service, or when the service stops operating due to a failure.
|An IPsec negotiation with a remote computer failed because the IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules (IKEEXT) service is not started.|
