    Hello all just started to study the MSPress book fot the 216, the exam formerly know as the beast.
    Five chapters in and my brain (such as it is) is on fire! Can anyone point me in the direction of any web resourses that explain IPSec in English not the strange language Microsoft seem to be talking?

    Thanks in advance

    I don't know if this is English, but give it a whirl:

    http://www.netbsd.org/Documentation/network/ipsec/

    http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/I/IPsec.html
    This one's just a definition, but for me, it's always a good place to start.

    I deliberately avoided any MS references since you said that they were hard to understand but:

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/tr...utions/network/maintain/security/ipsecimp.asp

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/tr...utions/network/maintain/security/ipsecarc.asp

    That should keep you busy for a bit. "...and remember, if you or any of your IM force should be caught or killed, the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions...good luck, Jim".

    IMHO the MS book was written by people from the planet Zog :!:

    I do have this personal crusade about the use of text books from MS and the fact there are a waste of shelf space.

    1 They were written to be used on the courses run by MS with an instructor.

    2 They do not cover all the material in the exam in any depth (two lines on page 356 does not constitute covering a topic in my eyes).

    3 The sent me either mad or sleep.

    I always suggest people get to a good computer book shop and have a look at other study guides (Sybex are my favorite) and I feel that TCP/IP for Windows 2000 on the Black Book series by Ian McLean is a MUST for this exam.
