:tazz: TCP/IP Registry Values That Harden the TCP/IP Stack
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 following list describes the TCP/IP-related registry values that you can configure to harden the TCP/IP stack on computers that are directly connected to the Internet. All of these values are located under the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services
NOTE: All values are in hexadecimal unless otherwise noted. • Value name: [I

[i][U]SynAttackProtect
Key: Tcpip\Parameters
Value Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Range: 0,1,2
Default: 0
[/i]




The bit where it has the Key: Tcpip\Parameters (its bolded, Itlics, and underlined up the top) what does that bit mean?

Is it meaning that i need to create the folders in the registry or look for them in the in there?

I have done this before but I have not done it in a while and I want to activate it on all the computers on the Network and internet.

tony_1983,
in regedit
go till HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters
and then there create a DWORD Value called SynAttackProtect and use 0,1, or 2

For more info. on what the values mean goto link.


And guys,
This has nothing to do with IE vs. Firefox.

I am aware of that--when the guy from danasoft first came up with it, it was interesting, now it's kind of annoying.

It also tends to freak some people out because they think that someone is tracking them.
