VPN services require IPFLT.NLM and FILTSVR.NLM to be loaded. Apparently VPN is dependent on code provided by these NLMs even if filtering is not enabled.

So, if you have a VPN server that you do not want to do any packet filtering, the trick is to

  • enable filter support in INETCFG >Protocols>TCP/IP
  • but disable all categories in FILTCFG>Configure TCP/IP Filters.

Then the needed NLMs will load without any actual filtering taking place.
