SetIpTTL function

The SetIpTTL function sets the default time-to-live (TTL) value for the local computer.

Syntax


DWORD SetIpTTL(
  _In_  UINT nTTL
);

Parameters

nTTL [in]

The new TTL value for the local computer.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is NO_ERROR.

If the function fails, the return value is one of the following error codes.

Return codeDescription
ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED

Access is denied. This error is returned on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 under several conditions that include the following: the user lacks the required administrative privileges on the local computer or the application is not running in an enhanced shell as the built-in Administrator (RunAs administrator).

ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER

An invalid parameter was passed to the function. This error is returned if the nTTL parameter is invalid.

Other

Use FormatMessage to obtain the message string for the returned error.

 

Remarks

The default TTL can also be set using the SetIpStatistics function.

On Windows Vista and later, the SetIpTTL function can only be called by a user logged on as a member of the Administrators group. If SetIpTTL is called by a user that is not a member of the Administrators group, the function call will fail and ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED is returned.

The SetIpStatistics function can also fail because of user account control (UAC) on Windows Vista and later. If an application that contains this function is executed by a user logged on as a member of the Administrators group other than the built-in Administrator, this call will fail unless the application has been marked in the manifest file with a requestedExecutionLevel set to requireAdministrator. If the application lacks this manifest file, a user logged on as a member of the Administrators group other than the built-in Administrator must then be executing the application in an enhanced shell as the built-in Administrator (RunAs administrator) for this function to succeed.

Note   On Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 and later, this function executes a privileged operation. For this function to execute successfully, the caller must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group or the NetworkConfigurationOperators group.
