OK, but I've put that into a service as well which is dependend on the 
TCPIP module ... That does work around ...

No, not an obvious way, of course ... But if you look into the system 
control group, administration there you find the services status (also 
%SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s from the command line). There is no 
way to insert a dependency, e.g. like NETLOGON has, directly in that 
interface, but you could use regedit to insert that one for CIPE as well ..

Event logs are in the same administration tool in the system control group, 
or you can use

%SystemRoot%\system32\eventvwr.msc /s

as the command line to access these ...
