TCP/IP Warning.

Since a clean install of XP Home Edition and the application of SP2 about 1 month ago, I have on 7 occasions found the following Event Viewer entry:

Event Type: Warning

Event Source: Tcpip

Event Category: None

Event ID: 4226

Date: 7/02/2005

Time: 1:50:53 PM

User: N/A

Computer: WDGR

Description:

TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts.

Data:

0000: 00 00 00 00 01 00 54 00 ......T.

0008: 00 00 00 00 82 10 00 80 ....?..?

0010: 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ........

0018: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ........

0020: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ........

During the previous 3 years of the original installation I did not once find this entry logged. All programs and applications on the new installation are the same as on the old. Is it somehow related to SP2?

The only information I can find about Event ID 4226 suggest this is a warning that a malicious program or a virus might be running on the system, or that it is related to file sharing or P2P programs.

I don't use P2P programs or file sharing and haven't had the slightest indication of a malicious program or virus running on the system. A-V and spyware, malware, etc. scans and checks are clear.

Any knowledge or experiences regarding this matter would be appreciated.

hi there..its a part of xp sp2 that limits the number of open ports from what i can recall..its 2 help being more secure against worms etc..there is a file around that lets u change this if u really need to....xp sp2 limits ports to 10 max and if tryin 2 exceed 10 it warns you in events log .....its not a bug but just a security measure....cheers...twista

go to www.lvllord.de to get a fix that u can set the number of half-connections open at any one time. Default is 50 and should be enough to still stop worms propogating but still stop you from getting this warning.
