Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 Symbols High Encryption Update
Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 Symbols High Encryption Update Ranking & Summary
Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 Symbols High Encryption Update description
This release of Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 (SP4) is easy to apply while Windows NT is running and updates all files that are older than those included in this Windows NT Service Pack. Service Pack releases are cumulative and contain all previous Service Pack fixes and any new fixes created after Service Pack 3.
IMPORTANT: SP4 contains only 40-bit encryption. This release isn't supported for installation on an existing North American 128-bit installation of Windows NT 4.0. If you install SP4 on a computer with 128-bit encryption, system services might fail to start.
IMPORTANT: It's recommended that you stop running any critical services before you apply Windows NT 4.0 SP4.
- Active Accessibility Support
Microsoft Active Accessibility (MSAA) is a COM-based standard method by which a utility program interacts with an application's user interface (UI). Using MSAA applications can expose all UI elements and objects with standard properties and methods. SP4 includes five new application programming interfaces (APIs). These new APIs include:
- DCOM/HTTP Tunneling
This update allows DCOM client/server communication to cross firewalls over the HTTP protocol port. The new protocol "Tunneling TCP" is used like other DCOM protocols. The new moniker type OBJREF is passed in HTML to the client. The benefits of Tunneling TCP include high performance, use of existing open ports in the firewall, and control of client access for proxy
- Euro Key Patch
The Euro Key Patch is an update to include the new European "euro" currency symbol. The update supplies the core fonts (Arial, Courier New, and Times New Roman) and the keyboard drivers.
- InternetGroup Management Protocol (IGMP) v2
IGMPv2 allows a computer to inform the router that it's leaving a group.
This update enables the router to determine if there are no more members in
a group and then executes a command to stop forwarding mcast packets on to
the link. This update is useful when users are frequently joining and
- Microsoft File and Print Service for NetWare (FPNW) Support for Client32
Microsoft File and Print Services for NetWare permits the Windows NT 4.0 Server to act as a NetWare 3.X Server and is able to process file and print requests from NetWare clients without changing or updating the NetWare client software. This Service Pack provides an update that allows Windows NT 4.0 to support NetWare's Client32. This update installs only on those computers that have the FPNW service already installed.
The Proquota.exe is a utility that can be set up to monitor the size of users' profiles. If an individual user's profile exceeds the predetermined file limit, the user won't be able to log off of the computer until the user reduces the size of the file.
- Remote Winsock (DNS/Port 53)
- Proxies or firewalls will often disable the Domain Name System (DNS) port number 53 in ] order to deter external sites from querying the internal DNS structure. As a result, inbound response packets sent on port 53 can't be received. SP4 provides a solution to change the Windows NT DNS server port number and configure it to use a different port number when connecting outbound.
- To enable this feature, a registry value "DWORD" is created. Locate service dns parameters SendOnNonDnsPort and set to a non-zero value to go off port 53. If the value is < 1024 the server can use any port number. If the value is > 1024 the server will use the port number specified.
- Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) Enhancements for Visual Basic (VB) RPC enhancements for VB have been provided in this release. In VB, a "User Data Type (UDT)" is added allowing the TypeLib arrangement of structures. These new user interfaces, IRecordInfo, provide UDT information and a UDT field for the Access Database.
- Routing Information Protocol (RIP) Listener
If you utilize RIP Listener on a computer running Windows NT 4.0, you can use SP4 to update this component. If you want to install RIP Listener after you apply SP4, use the following procedure.
To install the RIP Listener:

- WBEM consolidates and unifies the data provided by existing management technologies. WBEM focuses on solving real enterprise issues by tracking problem areas from the user/application level through the systems and network layers to remote service/server instances. For more information.
- Microsoft Windows NT Server NetShow Services
- SP4 contains an updated version of NetShow Services located on this CD in the NetShow folder. NetShow Services enables Internet service providers (ISPs) and organizations to deliver the highest-quality audio and video at every bandwidth across the Internet or enterprise networks. This release of NetShow Services features greatly enhanced audio and video that delivers the best user experience.

- Security Privilege Must Be Enabled to View Security Event Log
- SP4 includes a bug fix in the Event Log service that requires that the SE_SECURITY_NAME privilege, also known as the Security privilege, be enabled in order to view and manage the security event log. By default, Windows NT grants the privilege to administrators and local System. In order to take effect however, the privilege must also be enabled in the program accessing the security event log.
- Prior to this change, members of the Administrators group and services running as local System could open the security log for read or change access without enabling the Security privilege. If the privilege was removed from the Administrators group, members of the Administrators group could still manage the security log. This change enforces the security model that administrators need to be granted the privilege to manage the security log; they won't be able to manage the log simply because they are members of the Administrators group. Administrators can always grant themselves the Security privilege to manage the security log, however, although this event can be audited.
- Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
- This Service Pack includes several quality improvement fixes to correct known Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) issues reported for Microsoft DHCP Server, the DHCP Manager administration tool, and for Microsoft DHCP-enabled clients running under earlier released versions of Windows NT 4.0.

- Manual removal of dynamic WINS database records.
- Multi-select operations for WINS database records.
- Burst mode handling for WINS servers.
- Microsoft Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS)
SP4 can now be installed on a Windows NT 4.0 system running Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS). SP4 will update your RRAS system to RRAS Hotfix 3.0 components automatically. If you install RRAS after installing SP4, you must reinstall SP4 to get the updated RRAS files to ensure RRAS will work properly. For more information on RRAS Hotfix 3.0.
- PPTP Performance and Security Update
SP4 now includes new performance and security updates to PPTP that greatly increase data transfer speeds and enhance security. The PPTP client and server system must both be running the updated files to get the new benefits.
- NTLMv2 Security
SP4 contains an enhancement to NTLM security protocols called NTLMv2, which significantly improves both the authentication and session security mechanisms of NTLM.
- Secure Channel Enhancements
SP4 contains an enhancement to the secure channel protocols used by member workstations and servers to communicate with their domain controllers and by domain controllers to communicate with other domain controllers. In addition to authentication, you can now encrypt and check the integrity of these communications.
- IP Helper API (IPHLPAPI)
The IP Helper API provides Windows network configuration and statistics information to Win32 applications. The public API is available on Windows NT 4.0 and above, and Windows 95 and above. SP4 updates the API with a new .dll so that applications can communicate to a TCP/IP stack.
