Data type Range Default value
REG_DWORD 0x5 - 0xFFFFFFFF seconds 0xA (10 seconds)


Specifies the maximum acceptable age of an incoming mailslot message. If Net Logon receives a mailslot message that older than this value, it ignores the message.

This limitation allows Net Logon to process messages recent messages efficiently. It assumes that the sender of the old message timed out is no longer waiting for a response.

If this value is set too low, Net Logon might ignore important incoming mailslot messages. However, because Net Logon typically processes each mailslot message in a fraction of a second, the default value is usually optimal.
