This parameter determines the number of times TCP will retransmit a connect request (SYN) before aborting the attempt. The retransmission timeout is doubled with each successive retransmission in a given connect attempt.
Note: The Windows NT TCP/IP implementation is largely self tuning. Adjusting registry parameters may adversely affect system performance.

Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters]
Value Name: TcpMaxConnectRetransmissions
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Data: 0 - 0xFFFFFFFF (Default = 3)
