MaxUserPort registry setting being ignored by Windows 2003 SP2 x86

Hi All

I am trying to find out why some registry changes are not taking effect.

\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\tcpip\Parameters

MaxUserPort
TcpTimedWaitDelay

I have set MaxUserPort = 30,000 & TcpTimedWaitDelay to 30 seconds but these are not taking effect.

I am using netstat -a and I can see it only using the defaults.

Any ideas.

Thanks

Just to confirm you are creating both as DWORD's and setting the value as a decimal base ?
