Data type Range Default value
REG_DWORD 0x0 - 0xFFFFFFFF seconds 0x2D (45 seconds)


Determines how long the client waits for a response to a BAP callback-request. While waiting, the port on which the client listens is not available for any other use. When the value of this entry expires, the port is released.

This entry is used only when client computers are configured to use Bandwidth Allocation Protocol (BAP). BAP adds and drops links dynamically as they are needed to support your network traffic. Clients send callback-requests to ask the server to connect an additional link.

Note Image Note

The default value is optimal for most installations. However, you might consider increasing this value if the client is not answering the server's callback. This can indicate that the client stops listening before the server calls. Increase this value by approximately 15 seconds and test the callback again.

The RAS client implements any value you enter in this entry, even if the value is impractical. Be certain to test the effect of changing these values before you go online.

Windows 2000 does not add this entry to the registry. You can add it by editing the registry or by using a program that edits the registry.
