Error 2 Loading Registry Info

Some of you may remember that for the last few weeks I have been having
trouble accessing my TCP/IP set up to add new IP addresses to a NT 4.0 SP3
server (Intel). I wasn't able to solve the actual problem, and it seems as
though no-one at Microsoft can help except for the standard "reinstall a
fresh copy of NT" answer, which of course is unacceptable.

I have managed to find a way to add IP addresses manually in the registry to
work around this glitch. I founs it at:


Using Regedit.exe, you can see the IPs ok, but it's much easier to enter
them using regedt32.exe, as it has it's multi string dialogue box to add

The good news is it works, the bad news is that not all of the IPs I added
work - is there still a 5 IP limitation per adapter? If so, what's the
workaround? Please don't direct me to my TCP/IP properties :-)
