[Kaseya Script] Modify/Disable TCP Global Parameters on Windows systems

On November 23, 2011, in Scripting, by Cubert aka (Cube Dweller)

Need another Kaseya agent procedure? Here is one I use alot.

This article describes the TCP Chimney Offload, Receive Side Scaling (RSS), and Network Direct Memory Access (NetDMA) and other features that are available for the TCP/IP protocol inside of Windows. I have spent probably hundreds of hours on cases involving TCP Offloading and I know most of the signs (intermittent dropped connections, missing traffic in network traces, RDP blank windows, etc…).

I created a Kaseya script that goes and disables many of these NIC features Windows puts in their OS that causes so much havoc at times. 

Download Script here -> Procedure_Network_feature_shutdown

It is pretty basic, it sets several registery values and runs several shell CMDs using netsh to disable these protocols.

I hope this helps some of you out there.
