<p class="MsoNormal"><b><font face="Arial" color="black" size="3"><span>Limit on TCP connection attempts </span></font></b><font face="Arial" color="black"><span><br />Source: TcpIp<br />Event I 4226<br />Description:<br />TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts.<br />(Tcpip.sys file size: 359,808 bytes)<?xml:namespace prefix =" o" ns =" "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"" /></span></font></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><font face="Arial" color="black" size="3"><span><br />I have the Firewall set to 'don't allow exceptions' Maybe this setting has created that event ID. </span></font></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><font face="Arial" color="black" size="3"><span><br />MS have limited the concurrent connections for XP SP2 (where the tcpip.sys file size is <b><span>359,808</span></b> bytes) to <b><span>10</span></b>. It appears that a security download has changed the file from the original size <b><span>359,040</span></b> bytes to <b><span>359,808</span></b>.<br />This in turn has altered the offset from file size 359,040 with the offset 4F433 hex to some unknown offset. Is their work around or does someone knows the new offset. I do not like to have unresolved errors on our systems. I can not locate a registry entry either. Nor is MS helpful.</span></font></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><font face="Arial" color="black" size="3"><span>As you can see this is a problem with no apparent fix.</span></font></p>
