JSI Tip 1632. RAS application that communicates extensively with broadcasts or multicasts is not reliable?

You can increase the reliability of a RAS application that communicates extensively with broadcasts or multicasts by increasing the number of datagrams that can be buffered by the NetBIOS gateway.

Use Regedt32 to navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RemoteAccess\Parameters\NetbiosGateway

Double-click the MaxBcastDgBuffered value name in the right hand pane. The default data value for this type REG_DWORD entry is 32 (0x20 in hexadecimal). The range is 16 - 255.
