About the Author:

I am passionate about Systems Administration. I like to face new challenges and test new environments.Windows and Linux Debian boxes (both physical and virtual) are my favourites. I like solving problems related to Windows Server roles and services as well as Linux but some distributions in particular. I'm not considering myself as Linux master but surely, I always do my best to fit the needs. On the other hand I consider myself as a Windows Server Professional and in terms of WS and Windows Desktops I always follow best practices, good advices and opinions from other admins.

    First I want to say that your guides help me alot.

    The problem I have:
    Everything goes well till the point where the services are critical (with the socket timeouts). I got that.

    I tried to fix it by changing the values like you said, but it does nothing.
