256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows registry
Consider the following scenario. You send a print job from an IBM AIX-based client computer that is running SAP software to a Microsoft Windows Server 2003-based server. The Windows Server 2003-based server is running the Line Printer Daemon (LPD) service. In this scenario, the print job may time-out.
This problem occurs if the timestamp option for RFC 1323 is enabled on the server that is running the LDP service. During the TCP session setup, Windows Server 2003 sets the RFC 1323 timestamp values to 0. Then, when the timestamp option is enabled, IBM AIX calculates retransmission times by using the differences between the timestamp values that are acknowledged by TCP and the 0 timestamp values. Print jobs are more likely to time-out when retransmission time values are high.
A fix is available for AIX-based computers that are experiencing this problem. You can also disable the timestamp option on the server that is running the LDP service. To resolve this problem, use one of the following methods:
Method 1: Install the fix on the IBM AIX-based computer
To do this, follow these steps:
- Visit the IBM Web site that contains the fix for the version of AIX that the client computer is running.
- If the client computer is running AIX 5.3, visit the following Web site:
- If the client computer is running AIX 5.2, visit the following Web site:
- If the client computer is running AIX 5.1, visit the following Web site:
- Follow the instructions on the Web site to download and install the fix.

Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
To do this, follow these steps:
- Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
- Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
- Right-click Tcp1323Opts, and then click Modify.
- In the Value data box, type 0 or 1, and then click OK.
Note If you want to disable all RFC 1323 options, type 0. If you want to enable Windows scaling, type 1.
