    Which path is correct for Windows 2000 Server? I've seen both.

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\NoNameReleaseOnDeman
    d

    -or-

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters\NoNameReleaseOnDeman
    d

    as well as this one:

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\EnableFragmentChecki
    ng

    - or -

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\IPFilterDriver\Parameters\EnableFragm
    entChecking
