I have a web server running WIN2K. iPlanet Web Server Enterprise Edition 6.0. A lots of my clients/users are complaining that there is a dramatic reduce in speed connecting to my web server. Sometime, they cant even get the page. I did a netstat n and I saw a lot of  CLOSE_WAIT status (more than 100). I suppose it took up a lot of my servers resources When I did a reboot on the web server, the CLOSE_WAIT status are gone and the connection speed to my server resume.

Can anyone please advise me if there is any way I can kill the service and how do I reduce the number of CLOSE_WAIT status? Or is there a way to configure the parameter as to increase the performance of my web server?

I will appreciate for all the advice given. Thanks
