Hello UD805,

KeepAlive time is the duration after which TCP would send packets on an idle connection to verify if the connection is still alive.
You do not have to modify this value in your registry until you have a specific need to do so. Is there a reason why you want to add this?

Regards,
sunnycoder

Hi sunnycoder,
My scenario, There are 50 windows xp workstaions and 10 server( based on windows server 2003) ,one of all servers act as the active directory.
Because sometime windows xp workstaion in my domain cannot log on to active directory as normal,
and request time out while ping to gateway. In additional some terminal client confront a problem with
session time out every 5 minutes.
Could you please guide the way how to solve this problem ?
Thaks in advance

I am not a networking expert so cant really help you with diagnosing and correcting the problem. However, TCPKeepAlive is a very unlikely problem. It is used for idle connections and not active connections.

I can add this question to networking related TAs if you desire.
