    Question TCP/IP has reached the security limit EVENT ID 4226

    Running XP SP2 -
    I occasionally get this error in the EVENT VIEWER - SYSTEM:
    TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts.
    EVENT ID 4226

    when I look at the netstats, as you can see below, the majority of the usages are TIME_WAITS from PROG ID 0 which is the SYSTEM.

    Is there any tweak I can make to the registry to keep the time_waits from happening, or greatly reduce their time so the limit is a non issue, or is there a way to raise the limit?

    THANK YOU

    This is what MS has to say about it http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sup...cpip&LCID=1033 and it may be prudent to run ESET's Free Online Scanner http://www.eset.co.uk/Antivirus-Util...Online-Scanner

    Click on Advanced and check all of the boxes then disable your AV immediately before you hit the Scan button.

    There's also a box to check for auto uninstallation when done.

    Oh - and Welcome to the Lounge
