XP SP2 & CableNut - READ!!
« on: August 10, 2004, 10:52:21 am »
Well itís official, CableNut is the ONLY internet connection tweaking application that will allow you to optimize your internet connection with Windows XP SP2. SP2 makes numerous changes to your registry one of them is your TCP and AFD values, the ones that control your internet bandwidth. CableNut is the ONLY application that allows you to optimize your AFD (Ancillary Function Device Ė it acts as an entry point for Winsock functions to get to TCPIP.sys).  For years the CableNut Team has been saying how important the AFD registry values are and how they help optimize your bandwidth but many others (DSLR cough, cough, wink, wink) have argued that they donít effect anything.

With the release of Windows XP SP2 the updated TCP/IP stack now redirects to your AFD values in the registry. Try a TCP/IP Analyzer test or DSLR Tweak Test and see, it will show your RWIN (DefaultReceiveWindow) as the value you have in CableNut under DefaultReceiveWindow which is an AFD parameter. This shows how important it is to use CableNut so you can fully optimize connections bandwidth.

We, the CableNut Team, are proud to be the first to publicly announce this. We are still looking into what exact changes are made to the TCP/IP stack.

That claim is nothing but pure BULL****!!  I am currently using XP SP2 on all 14 of my machines and have no problem whatsoever tweaking with DrTCP.  I have gone in and changed multiple settings with no problems just to test this claim and everything works fine!!  By the way, can you tell us when the last time was that CableNut was updated??  Based on my research it was sometime in 2001.

Dr.tcp doesn't  use the afd paramerters   the only values dr.tcp makes is the tcpip stack not the afd.   re read below  Dr.tcp only changes  the tcp window size which is a tcpip parameter not afd  The cablenut software doesn't need to be updated  cause it included the whole tcpip stack and also the afd parameters.    

With the release of Windows XP SP2 the updated TCP/IP stack now redirects to your AFD values in the registry. Try a TCP/IP Analyzer test or DSLR Tweak Test and see, it will show your RWIN (DefaultReceiveWindow) as the value you have in CableNut under DefaultReceiveWindow which is an AFD parameter. This shows how important it is to use CableNut so you can fully optimize connections bandwidth.

Glad to see a response, we don't delete posts here that we disagree with like DSLR, we allow people to post as they wish. :)

Could you please post a TweakTest result or TCP/IP Analyzer Test? I have installed SP2 on over 15 machines so far and what I wrote holds true for all of them. DrTcp or the TCPOptimizer no longer effects your RWIN value in the sniffer results.
