Firewall: Netlogon Service Authz (RPC)

Q: Firewall: Netlogon Service Authz (RPC)

I found this in the inbound rules in the Windows 8 firewall, its a fairly fresh install (12 hours) and the "Authz" looks like some kind of "1337speak".

As I am typing this Microsoft Management Console popped up on top of the firewall blocking my view into the properties of this rule, and I am unable to close it.. I do remember that the process is lass or something like that though..

Any help on this would be great?

Has anyone seen this?

Preferred Solution: Firewall: Netlogon Service Authz (RPC)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Firewall: Netlogon Service Authz (RPC)

I was able to close MMC via task manager.. the process is "%SystemRoot%\System32\lsass.exe", and the description is "Inbound rule for the NetLogon service to process remote authz requests via RPC/TCP."

I have a DHCP domain and some of my PC's are unable to logon to the domain I receive netlogon service not running. I go into service and try to manually start the service and I get an error -- "the dependancy service or group failed to start."

 

A:Netlogon service

If the machines are unable to get an IP address from the DHCP server, the netlogon service will not start. Check the TCP/IP properties on the client machines and make sure they are setup for DHCP. Also, try doing ipconfig /release & renew.

I recently encountered a problem on the networking of Win 7 professional. My laptop is installed with Windows 7, 64bit, with Service Pack 1.

I have shared some local folders via my home WLAN so I can access the files while using my other devices in living room, bedroom, and etc. It's been going quite well, until one night last week. I couldn't access my local files thru WLAN. It kept saying that
User login information is not correct but I've double checked that user name and password are both correct. Besides, the sharing settings of my local folders are all the sam as they were.

Based on my poor IT knowledge, I checked services running on my laptop and found Netlogon service shows "Manual" and stopped. I tried to change it back to "Automatic" and then started it. Then a dialogue box poped up saying: "The
netlogon service on local computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they have no work to do". And the service stopped.

And after I restarted my laptop, I found the Netlogon service was again switched back to "Manual". And I repeated the previous steps but it kept showing that message. I restarted the computer several times and it's still the same.
I didn't install any softwares last week before the problem occurred, except the Windows update KB4480907 and KB2808679. And the laptop have been running very normally since last December, with no blue screen or forced shut-down.

A thread from last year (5/2001) that the best fix is to reinstall the OS and install SP6. My problem is that SP6 is already installed on the server. I am concerned that the reinstall/fix will delete software (obviously a great concern) and it is specialized surveillance software that I am unfamiliar with. The server doesn't act as a file server but rather as the security utility operator.

Please help.

Thank you.

A:Netlogon Service NOT running BUT has SP6

Reinstalling the Service Pack will not damage any files, just replace any damaged ones that the service pack has.

Reinstalling the OS will kill all your settings and reset the registry, so you would have to reinstall all the programs again.
Can you start it manually?

Is there an event in the event viewer that might give you a little more to go on?

A:Missing Netlogon Service

Looks like the registry entries got deleted:
KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanworkstation

You could do a system restore, or if you are comfortable editing the registry import them from the registry of another PC running XP and restart windows (probably easier).

A:Netlogon service not running

I had exactly the same problem with a Windows NT 4.0 workstation. The solution that Microsoft gives is to install Service Pack 6 but you can't do that if you can't log in, can you?
What I had to resort to doing is reinstalling Windows NT 4.0 Workstation, leaving the data intact but that can cause more problems then it is worth as programs lose registry keys and may stop working.
If you have a backup of your data on the Server, the best is to reinstall Windows NT Server and wipe all data while reinstalling.
The Netlogon service will work once reinstalled.
Unfortunately, I found no way to bypass the logon.
If you find out another solution, I would love to know.

Hi. A week ago, my computer got hijacked with the about:blank. I used several spyware removers, and was able to remove and reset my IE. The problem I now face is that whenever I restart my computer, a new hardware detected "Workstation NetLogon Service", and it's wanting to install on my computer.

I have read all I can about Workstation NetLogon Service. I do not have it installed on my computer, so I can't disable or stop it under Services Management. I believe it's connected to the about:blank hijack, because before then I didn't have this hardware detection. I can't delete the hardware because it's not actually installed.. I don't know what to do.

A:About:Blank & Workstation NetLogon Service

As you have read the Net logon service "Supports pass-through authentication of account logon events for computers in a domain."
This is usually installed by default on a Windows XP computer but
is set to manual start. If it were installed you could go to Start, Run, type
cmd and then type net stop netlogon and it would stop the service.

It maybe this virus and may have added the entry in the Registry.
http://securityresponse.symantec.com...rmageddon.html

I would recommend making sure that Windows is up to date and running
the Trend Micro online virus scan if you have broadband.

Greetings,

I am just trying to hammer out the issues I find in event viewer. Here is one of them:

Event ID: 3095
This computer is configured as a member of a workgroup, not as a member of a domain. The Netlogon service does not need to run in this configuration.

I am, indeed, a part of a workgroup and NOT a domain. What could the Netlogon service do for me as apart of a workgroup as opposed to a domain?
This took place while I was sitting in front of the computer but I have no idea what would cause this error. Any ideas?

A:Event Viewer - Netlogon service error

It may be configured to start automatically in Services, and can't start and complains. If it is not running and you have no problems, then just keep it from trying to start in the first place.

Go to Start, Run, services.msc and scroll down to the Net Logon service, right click, Properties, set Startup type to manual or disabled, OK.

I am unable to access shared files on a Win 2000 Pro machine from a Win 98 machine. The Microsoft Support site deals with the problem but I get an error message when I attempt the fix to start NetLogon. "Windows could not start the Net Logon on Local Computer .... refer to service specific error code 3095."

Q? Is Net Logon not on W2K Pro?

BACKGROUND (pasted from Microsoft Support site.)

This article was previously published under Q262916
SYMPTOMS

When you attempt to connect to a Microsoft Windows 2000 computer over the network, you may receive one of the following error messages:

You must supply a password to make this connection:
Resource: \\computername\IPC$

CAUSE
This behavior can occur if the Netlogon service is not started on the Windows 2000 computer.

RESOLUTION
To connect to the network share, follow these steps:
1. In Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then click Component Services.
2. Right-click the Netlogon icon, and then click Start.

MORE INFORMATION
This issue affects only Windows 9x computers. Computers running Windows NT and/or Windows 2000 are able to connect when the Netlogon service is turned off.

Hiya

======
There is a flaw in the Winsock Proxy service in Microsoft Proxy
Server 2.0, and the Microsoft Firewall service in ISA Server 2000,
that would allow an attacker on the internal network to send a
specially crafted packet that would cause the server to stop
responding to internal and external requests. Receipt of such a
packet would cause CPU utilization on the server to reach 100%, and
thus make the server unresponsive. The Winsock Proxy service and
Microsoft Firewall service work with FTP, telnet, mail, news,
Internet Relay Chat (IRC), or other client applications that are
compatible with Windows Sockets (Winsock). These services allow
these applications to perform as if they were directly connected to
the Internet. These services redirect the necessary communications
functions to a Proxy Server 2.0 or ISA Server computer, thus
establishing a communication path from the internal application to
the Internet through it.
Maximum Severity Rating: Important

Hi Brijm,

Vague post, but I imagine you're seeing this:



If so, try this:

1) Reset the Winsock.a) Go to the command prompt.
b) Type the command "Netsh winsock reset" (without quotes), and press ENTER.
c) This won?t take effect until after you re-boot in step 4.2) Install and run a spyware removal program. Try Spybot Search and Destroy, it's free.

3) Make sure the ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) service is set to start automatically.a) Go to the Control Panel.
b) Double-click Administrative Tools.
c) Double-click Services.
d) Scroll to the bottom of the list; double-click "Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)".
e) Make sure the Startup type is set to 'Automatic'.
f) Click Apply, if needed.
g) Click OK.4) Restart your system.

5) Your firewall should now be up. Check it by going to the Control Panel.a) Double-click the Security Center Icon.
b) The firewall section should be green and say ?ON?.
Let us know how you get on.

Windows Firewall And Service Cuts Off By Itself

I've been having this problem with my firewall lately. Just started 3 days ago. The whole entire service has been shutting completely off approximatley 2:00 minutes after connecting to the internet on my wireless d-link adapter and upon boot or reboot. Now don't get me wrong, I can turn it back on. I get the message, "Windows firewall settings cannot be displayed because associated service is not running. Do you want to start windows firewall/internet connection sharing (ICS) service?", when I click the firewall icon. I click yes and it comes back on, but STILL. Its never did this before. I have to keep turning it back on every time I reboot, when it cuts off. Is this perhaps a virus, spyware attack or maybe a hack attempt or exploit? I have windows xp home edition, service pack 3, wireless connection, no other firewall but windows firewall, no anti-virus, lots of spyware programs (superantispyware, spybot search and destroy, trojan remover) which I ran over and over again but still the problem persist, and also a dell computer. Windows firewall and service doesn't shut down when i'm not connected to the internet, hmm, which is strange. I've heard of ways hackers can shut the firewall off through codes and such. I'm scared. Please help.

Hi Guys

WIndows Vista Home Premium on a laptop with auto updating and running Avast antivirus.

It did an automatic Windows update on 3rd June. However, the computer, upon booting, now comes up with a variety of error messages....

Many programs (including Word) will not now run, and I can no longer access the net - wireless networks cannot be detected and even hard wiring to my router will not allow discovery.

Says that there are 'multiple security problems'; esp, that Firewall is not running. Clicking Fix Now has no effect. Trying to run FW has no effect, except to say that the FW service is not running, would I like to run it now? Click ok to find that the FW service will not load; various other Windows services will neither load nor run.

Avast is no longer 'able to secure the computer', etc. Have run full Malware, Virus Killer and Spyware progs, but they have found nothing out of place.

Tried to run Restore, but all the dates have been erased previous to 3 June. Running the earliest one on the 3 June results in error messages to say that Restore was unsuccessful. Same with any later Restore points.

Taken it to a repair shop -all they did was the same as me, and said it will require a factory reset to repair. I cannot believe that I need to do all this, reloading all the software etc and the major grief of all that.

Recently moved house, in rented accommodation so loads of stuff away in storage, so no easy access to my old OEM discs.

When I try to start the Windows XP firewall/ICS service, I get a message that says "Could not start the Windows Firewall/ICS Service on local computer.

Hi BC Guys,

Recently, about two months ago, I got a really nasty virus on my computer which was version of "Antivirus Protection 2012" (a slightly different version than you have posted in your viruses removal list ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/ ). The virus/trojan prevented my installed anti-virus program from running (or killing it). Haven't had time until now to finish with it.

I used RKill and it did effectively stopped the virus/trojan from freezing the anti-virus programs. McAfee was useless, so I subsequently installed and ran Malwarebytes and SuperAnti-spyware. That combination appeared to do a good job of cleaning the virus(es)from my system. However after that my internet connection won't work, several services won't restart, my printer and my firewall won't work. Also, my audio wouldn't work - but I did get that running now (by checking and restarting some audio services).

I went to Network Connections and tried to enable,diagnose, repair (and reset the adapter), -but I keep getting a message "Restart DHCP Client Service", and "Automatically get new IP Settings for network adapter..." no matter what I do, it won't start.

I've been using Vista 32-bit since sometime around January on my custom built desktop. I'm running Vista 32-bit fully updated and I have been using remote desktop for a few years in XP and have successfully been using it in Vista until now. I was having problems connecting to my Vista PC via remote desktop when I noticed remote desktop was disabled. So I tried to re-enable it and was told that the rule for Remote Desktop could not be added to the firewall because it was not running. So I've tried to start the firewall in every way I know including starting the service manually. When I try to start the service I get the message: "Windows could not start the Windows Firewall on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 5."

I installed the PC-tools firewall, but this didn't fix my remote desktop problem; I still can't enable it because the Vista Firewall still isn't running.

Also on a side note I have also been hibernating my PC at night since I started using Vista, but now the hibernate option has disappeared from the shutdown menu. Any ideas how to get hibernation back?

I'm stumped on both of these issues so any help would be appreciated.

Hey everyone,

I have a question about internet and site security. What is the difference between a web application firewall and a security software as a service? What would be the benefits of each?

I have a website that gets a few thousand hits a month, but still needs protection from hackers. What should I be expected to pay, and what are the pros and cons of both of these types of internet security?

A:Application Firewall vs. Software as a Service

A web application firewall does not route traffic on the network layer. All traffic stops at the firewall which may initiate its own connections if the traffic satisfies the rules.SaaS (Software as a Service) is generally associated by software professionals and business associates with business software and is typically thought of as a low-cost way for businesses to obtain rights to use software as needed versus licensing all devices with all applications.Even if your website doesn't get too much activity, you still want to make sure that its 100% safe, and not low ball it because you want to save money. I do a lot of software research for my company, and have recently come across this new service called XyberShield. It is a relatively new concept for Internet Security, enacting a Behavior Based Protection that attacks and stops cyber attacks before they cause damage to your website. Everything from SQL Injection, Cross Site Scripting, SSI Injection, Brute Force Attacks, and HTTP Response Splitting is shut down through this service. The best part about it is its cheap compared to other services and products. You might want to check it out if your looking for something to protect your web application with, heres the link http://xybershield.com Hope I answered some of your questions, let me know if I can be of anymore help!

Hey guys,

I have often come here in the past to help me with various tech related woes, but I've never needed to post before. But now I do since I can no longer turn my Windows Firewall Service on, through any means in which one can do so under normal circumstances. I'm running Windows Vista SP2. From Windows Security Centre it tells me "Security Centre can't turn on Windows Firewall." From Windows Firewall it tells me "Windows Firewall settings cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the Windows Firewall Service?" then when I click yes "Windows cannot start the Windows Firewall Service." when trying to start it manually from Administrative Tools \ Services it tells me "Windows could not start the Windows Firewall on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log." and the only thing Windows Firewall related I have been able to find in the Event Log is "The Windows Firewall Service was unable to retrieve the security policy from the local storage. The service will continue enforcing the current policy. Error Code: 2147942413".

All the different fixes I have seen online either haven't helped, or I wasn't sure enough to try them all. What can I do that is short of a complete reinstall of Vista?

Thanks a lot.
