Modifying registery & migrating software from a Windows version to a UNIX version

Hello

I am in the process of testing the latest version of our testing software. This particular version there are packages for Windows and UNIX.

The UNIX (optimised for Solaris 8)program states that it can handle the processing of tests that use a WinSock component.

However, there are certain registery paramemters that may need to be changed to avoid generating specific errors in order to fine tune the testing package.  

Such as these two parameters which are placed under the following Windows registery. When these two parameters were set, the problem was overcame in the Windows environment.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters

The values that are added or modified are as follows.

Value Name: TcpTimedWaitDelay
Data Type: REG_DWORD

Value Name: MaxUserPort
Data Type: REG_DWORD

Is there any way to edit similar values within a UNIX environment (Solaris 8)?

If there is a such a way, which file do I need to edit?
Please could you list the filepaths that I may need to open, as I am unfamiliar with UNIX administration.

Many thanks in advance
