Small Clanger is alarmed. He sees the musical helicopter breaking up and losing its notes. Tiny Clanger gesticulates and hoots. The iron chicken on its star sees her and flaps over and collects her, scoops her up and carries her back to its star. The Clangers are even more alarmed. They wonder what will become of her. Tiny Clanger is very pleased. She greets the chicken as an old friend and gives it the jewel. They drink tea and chat interstellar small-talk. The chicken goes below and fetches her a small iron hat, with aerial and earpiece. It is their personal radio communicator.

comment Can I force a Windows Server 2008 DNS Conditional Forwarder to use TCP Only?
I'm not certain, but I think they're AD-integrated DNS, possibly on a newer server version. Not that I think there's any special configuration there, it's just that UDP 53 packets are dropped at an internal hop by a network policy that only applies to this class of link. (They may well use UDP internally)

A little more information would be useful. What's your server platform? Are you hosting through Apache or svnserve? Where are you expecting this custom error text to be visible?

If the issue is down to a lot of user-space software simply having too low a ceiling on socket buffer allocations, the question then becomes "Is it the job of the OS to intervene in these case? Could it even?". I'll follow if MS have come back with a useful answer.

Thanks. At least in part it's nice to know I'm not just going mad. I've read a few blogs/threads from the XP/2003 days that recommend those registry settings, but they were written before Vista/2008 and I'm pretty sure they're ignored in Vista onwards. I think I actually will raise a ticket with MS about this (wish me luck)

Fantasic input; thank you. I am using iperf 2.0.4, I'll experiment with the settings and update my OP with some new caps, too.
