|SSH Sentinel is not currently certified to run with Windows XP SP2. Installing SP2 may cause connection problems with your installed SSH Sentinel software (however diagnostics will continue to work).
The current solution is to either revert back to SP1 or earlier or to use another IPSec client with XP SP2. More information on this subject will be posted here.
NOTE: before upgrading to SP2 be sure to check that other important software is compatible with the new networking limitations. Some of the new limitations are listed below.
1. TCP packets may no longer be sent through the raw sockets API
2. IP spoofed UDP packets may no longer be sent through raw sockets
(affects decoy and spoofed scanning).
3. Outbound TCP connection attempts are throttled to a slow rate.
4. By default, Windows Firewall is enabled and blocks unsolicited connections to your computer
