TCP/IP Registry Settings

A version of this page is also available for

Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3


The Windows Embedded CE TCP/IP protocol suite obtains all of its configuration data from the registry. This section defines the registry parameters used to configure the protocol driver Tcpstk.dll. These registry parameters are read during the initialization of TCP/IPv4 or TCP/IPv6. If a key does not exist in the registry, the stack will use the default value internally. A few of the parameters are visible in the registry by default, but most must be created in order to modify the default behavior of the TCP/IPv4 or TCP/IPv6 protocol driver.


Microsoft does not recommend changing the default values for these registry settings without careful study of the environment, as adjusting registry parameters might adversely affect system performance.
