Hi All,
Does anyone know where I can specify the number of rings that will be allowed before my Win 2003 server (SBS) will allow to go by before answering?

Thanks,
Terry

under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\Parameters
add the "NumberOfRings" with type REG_DWORD, specify the value as you like.

hope it helps,

Is there any other interface for adjusting number of rings besides in the registry?
