TCP/IP retries


  • Anybody knows how I can changed the number of retries and timeout that a TCP packet have at the TCP/IP layers ?

    I think that the retries are 3 and the timeout double every retry for a maximum of 2 minutes.  Anybody can confirm ?

    This forum is typically used for questions regarding application developement with the System.Net namespace.  You may want to look at this whitepaper which describes the TCP/IP implementation in Windows Server 2003:

  • I am looking for a way to change the timeout and retry within my C# winform application.  Are you suggesting to change programmatically the registry values of windows ?

  • What I would say is that I don't know fully the implications of mucking with the
    TCP/IP stack's behavior.  So I think the best bet is to post this in the corresponding forum where the TCP/IP gurus can best tell you how to do that.
