A. In How do I configure LAN autodisconnect?, we saw how to enable LAN autodisconnect. However, you can configure some additional registry entries.

  • announce—The network announce rate, in seconds. This rate determines how often the server is announced to other computers on the network.
  • anndelta—The number of milliseconds the announce rate can vary, allowing a degree of randomness. The default is 3000 milliseconds.

For example, if the announce member has a value of 10 and the anndelta member has a value of 1, the announce rate can vary from 9.999 seconds to 10.001 seconds.
