256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows Registry
This article describes the TCP/IP registry entries in the NetTrans subkey.
WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
The entries in this section must be added to the following registry key:
n represents a specific TCP/IP-to-network adapter binding.
|MaxMTU = 16-bit integer||String||Specifies the maximum size datagram Internet Protocol (IP) that can pass to a media driver. Subnetwork Access Protocol (SNAP) and source routing header (if used on the media) are not included in this value. For example, on an Ethernet network, MaxMTU defaults to 1500. The actual value used is the minimum of the value specified with this parameter and the size reported by the media driver. The default value is the size reported by the media driver; an Ethernet network defaults to 1500 bytes and a Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) dial-up connection defaults to 576 bytes.|
|ZeroBroadcast||String||If this parameter is set to 1, the IP uses zeros-broadcasts (0.0.0.0.) instead of ones-broadcasts (255.255.255.255.). Most systems use ones-broadcasts, but some systems derived from Berkeley Style Daemons (BSD) implementations use zeros-broadcasts. Interoperation does not work well on the same network for systems that use different broadcasts. Valid range 0 or 1 (false or true). The default value is 0.|
