Environment

Novell BorderManager 3.8
Novell BorderManager 3.8 SP4
Novell BorderManager 3.8 POST SP4 Interim Release-5
Novell NetWare 6.5 SP5
Novell iManager 2.6

Situation

Accessing the BorderManager "Easy Filter Configuration" menu returns the Alert:
"Filters added will not be active if TCP/IP Filtering Support is not enabled.
Use INETCFG.NLM to enable TCP/IP Filtering Support in case it is disabled."

The Legacy Filter Configuration works without any problems
Filter Support shows up as "Enabled" from withing the INETCFG TCP/IP Protocol Configuration menu
BorderManager Packet filters are active and work without any problem

The iManager debug screen iManager retunrs the following JAVA exception while trying to get access to "Easy Filter Configuration":
