    heres my question about port scanning xp/sp1 - vs win7 premium

    i currently run an old pc for proxy scanning. xp/sp1 , on it i run proxy fire. the settings i use are tcp
    threads 3500 -- time out 3 from each scan of proxies i do i always get 18-20k from my list of ip ranges.

    today i tried proxyfire on my windows 7 machine, running win 7 premium
    same settings on proxyfire threads 3500 -- time out 3 using tcp scan
    scanning the same ip ranges i get 10k

    i went back to my old xp/sp1 machine did another scan 20k
    tried again on win 7 machine 10k

    something is limiting my scan any ideas guys using direct cable modem to pc as always
    any ways round this

    The problem is that Win 7 limits the number of concurrent TCP connection threads allowed. There's a registry edit file that can be found by some googling that will increase the limit far beyond the stock state. This causes an issue with many other programs as well because I'm pretty sure Windows 7 has a default max per process connection limit. Search around for registry edit's to increase your max thread limits. If you can't find it, PM me and I'll dig it up somewhere off my other PC. I actually have used it before, but it was for a different purpose.
