I run XP Pro and Zone Alarm Pro (which I recently installed) It began notifying me that a program called Ireike.exe was connecting to the web. So, I set ZoneAlarm to block that. When I look at the logs, I notice that this program tries to get onto the net about once every 2 or 3 minutes. What does this program do and is it important for it to reach the Net ? So far I have not had any problems with anything on my computer, so I guess it must be ok for this program not to reach the Net. But what I would like to know is what it does, and why is it on my computer in the first place ? Has it got anything to do with a VPN Client I tried to install earlier ( Watchguard VPN Mobile Client ) which I now do not use.

By the way it could either be Irelke or Ireike - it is hard to make out which one it os with the font displayed on Zone Alarm. But Zone Alam reports it to be a Service Application.

Any info will be helpful. Thanks.

Hi Viji, and welcome to TSG.. :)

You're quite right, it is part of the VPN client.

See here for more info.
