Novell iManager 2.6

Situation

Cannot access Easy Filter Configuration menu in iManager when the maximum cached object file size for FTP or HTTP objects is set to more than 2047 MB.
ERROR: "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."

While trying to access the "Easy Filter Configuration" menu the snapin 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.".
Accepting the alert by pressing the OK button does still not allow access to the "Easy Filter Configuration" menu.
Any other administration tool than "Easy Filter Configuration" seems to work.
Packet filters are active and running without any further problem.
Chnages can be applied (except through the Easy Filter Configuration)

Debugging iManager while trying to get access to "Easy Filter Configuration" thourghs the following acception:
