The TCP/IP backlog size for Windows XP
Does anyone know what is the TCP/IP backlog size for Windows XP? (I posted this question a while ago at gamedev.net, but no one seemd to know.)
Microsoft stipulates at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/pro...g/tcpip03.mspx
that "Windows XP Professional accepts a backlog of 5"
But other sources hold that the backlog size is 200, e.g.
"Windows NT/2000/XP Server's maximum connection backlog size is 200"
I've done some tests and the backlog size definitively seems to be well above 5.
I think there's a difference between accepts a baclog size of 5" and the "maximum connection backlog size is 200". The latter is the maximun size. Obviously, sys admins can configure the system's settings so this figure is variable. 5 seems to be the minimum whereas 200 is the maximum.
