I just got a new laptop and I installed all of the regular software. I recently started gettting an odd message occasionally. There does not seem to be a pattern as to when it occurs. The message is as follows:

Windows Fatal Application Exit-
Kerio Personal Firewall Driver: BufferAllocate: Buffer Size (17087) > MaxBufferSize (16384) - Increase Buffer Size


I realize there is a buffer problem, but how do I fix it? I am running XP Pro.

Thanks in advance!

Hi asatyss,

I'm running 2.15 on XPPro
Probably the same key if you're running a later version.

Run regedit

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CurrentControlSet
Services
fwdrw
MaxBufferSize

rightclick MaxBufferSize, click Modify, click decimal and change 16384 to 24576

Don't think you have to reboot, just stop/restart KPF

When I try that path in the registry, there is no fwdrw, but there is fwdrv. I just want to make sure I change the right thing. Also, the value data for the buffer size is currently at 4000. Is that normal?

OoOoOoOps, sorry!!! my fault... or my cat walking on the keyboard:-)

it's fwdrv and nothing else for XP, w2k and probably also for NT4
(for W98 and Me it's: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\fwdrv)

When you say your value is 4000 I think you mean hex, which equals 16384 decimal. Your errormessage indicate that.
Can't answer you if the value is normal or not but I've never changed mine and my default value is 4000 hex / 16384 decimal. If you prefer hex then change 4000 to 6000 = 24576 decimal.
