I'm using W2k. Does anyone know the registry key that determines the FREQUENCY of when the browser list is updated. Yes I know playing with this can cause enourmous problems. But I'm studying for an exam and need/want to see my changes more quickly. I've looked in ms kb. I've searched here. Nothing seems to address the question specifically.

The reason why there is no registry key is because you are talking about windows rpc communications for netbios that are built into the os and part of the basic network stack. Windows machines negotiating a master and 2 backups based on a criteria list and elect the master. My point is, where is it? Everywhere.

I believe the term is lmannounce... for Lan Manager Announce, I would look in Local Machine, System, Current Control Set... or just search the registry for lmannounce.

If my memory serves me.

In all 3 of my control sets that key, lmannounce, as a value of 0x00000000.

Hmmm... if that is the case then it is a on/off setting. That means lmannounce, is the key that tells the lanmanager service to announce itself to the domain/browse lists. Basically it turns on or off the updating of browse lists... so ... I don't know the answer to your question.

Housenet... this is NetBIOS, which uses SMB... RPC isn't used here, but I a beginning to think that it is a default setting as to how often a machine announces itself. That means if there is a setting it probaly doesn't exst until it is added, in order to change the timing.
