Connection Security Properties - Computers

Applies To: Windows Server 2008


Use these settings to apply the rule to a pair of computers or a set of endpoint computers. You can specify one or more computers as either endpoint. You can specify a specific IP address, a subnet, a predefined address, or an IP address range.

The computers in the list do not have any priority or order. Any computer specified for Endpoint 1 can form a connection with any computer specified for Endpoint 2.


The connection security rule will apply to communications between any computer in Endpoint 1 and any computer in Endpoint 2. To have connection security rules that apply only to specific pairs of computers, create a connection security rule for each pair.
