I use a
VPN channel for an online banking client.
This channel is implemented as an
NDIS filter installed on the outbound network interface which gets activated when you insert the smart card.
When activated, this filter amongst other things blocks all incoming connections on the interface (this is the bank's policy and cannot be changed). This means I cannot
RDP to the machine while the filter is active and many other nasty things.
Just setting up a secondary
IP address won't help because the filter blocks incoming connections on the interface level, not on the address level.
Now the question is: is it possible to set up an "alias" for the interface (with another
IP address of course) which receives all packets the physical interface receives but does not have this
NDIS filter bound to it? If it is, how do I do that?
