No it isn't, it is hardcoded into the executables in IIS 5.1.

yeah, good luck with that :). Not a chance I'd be doing that on a system I value.

Me either ;)
If at first you don't succeed, bomb disposal probably isn't for you! ヅ

It works though :)
But if we are talking about a mail server doing more than 10 concurrent outbound connections then probably you should be looking at it more seriously.

I thought we went through this before

Both XP & 2000 allow unlimited incoming TCP/IP connections (for P2P etc).

Both XP & 2000 have a maximum of 10 connections to network shares on a PC (for sharing files etc).

Win XP SP2 introduced this limitation and changed the number of possible TCP connection attempts per second to 10 (from unlimited in SP1). This is Microsoft so called way of "reduce the threat" of worms spreading fast without control.

2000 hasn't been tweaked/changed so it should still allow unlimited incoming TCP/IP connections for P2P, etc.

Yes you are correct, but a limit of 10 per second is not a limit of 10 connections in total, which is what they are discussing

Michael

Edit: If you are running system that needs more then 10 connections a sec, then you really do need to be on a better OS the XP or 2000.

There is a tool named XP-Antispy which provides (as a bonus) an option to increase the number of TCP connections on an XP (even up to unlimited). Freeware. Just google :)

There are several tools that work with stable results.
However, if you run Windows update on your machine, and the TCP/IP stack gets updated, which is done quite often, the limitation is right back.
So make a note for yourself not to forget to reapply the patch after each update.
