HOW WINDOWS NT MAPS LAN MANAGER PARAMETERS

This section lists LAN Manager network service parameters and their Windows NT equivalents. LAN Manager parameters that relate to MS- DOS are not listed. Also, because Windows NT dynamically allocates memory for network operations, many LAN Manager parameters are no longer relevant.

LAN Manager vs. Windows NT Settings for Services

In LAN Manager, service parameter settings are found in the file LANMAN.INI. In Windows NT, these settings are stored in the Registry.

In Windows NT, these entries are in the Registry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Service name\Parameters.

LAN Manager vs. Windows NT Settings for Adapter Cards

In LAN Manager, these entries are found in the [adaptercard] section of the
PROTOCOL.INI file.

In Windows NT, these entries are in the registry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\adapter name#\Parameters. However, you
can change most of settings for network adapter cards by using the Network
option in Control Panel.
