The registry stores information necessary to configure the system for applications and hardware devices. The registry also contains information that the operating system continually references during operation. The protected registry contains named values for configuration.

Note   The default registry values vary depending on which Catalog items are included in your OS design. For more information, see Default Registry Settings.

To register or resolve peer names to IP endpoints in PNRP, a peer must be bootstrapped into the PNRP cloud. In order for peers to bootstrap into the Global or Internet PNRP cloud, a peer may contact a PNRP seed server hosted by Microsoft. This server acts as an always on, well-known server that peers can utilize for bootstrapping purposes. For each IPv6 scope, which can be local, site, or global (Internet), a user can specify the seed server by setting the specific registry key. The following registry keys specify settings for each scope.


The following table shows the named values for the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMM\PeerNet\PNRP\IPV6-Global\Global_ key.

SeedServer: REG_SZThis string value allows for specification of a well-qualified IPv6 address and port, or a DNS resolvable name. Default value is ""
Note   The PNRP service must be restarted for the changes to take effect. For the global scope, the default is the Microsoft-hosted PNRP Seed Server.
