Using Registry Values to Enable and Disable Connection Offloading

Last Updated: 1/24/2017

When you debug a driver's connection offload functionality, you might find it useful to enable or disable connection offload services with a registry key setting. There are standardized keywords that you can define in INF files and in the registry. For more information about standardized keywords, see Standardized INF Keywords for Network Devices.

The connection offload keywords are defined as follows:

*TCPConnectionOffloadIPv4
Describes whether the device enabled or disabled the offload of TCP connections over IPv4.

*TCPConnectionOffloadIPv6
Describes whether the device enabled or disabled the offload of TCP connections over IPv6.

The following table describes the grouped keywords that you can use to configure offload services.
