The FwxListenerMaxPercent property gets or sets the maximum percentage of sockets that are waiting for the first block of data out of the total number of sockets that are waiting for an incoming connection or for the first block of data on a Web listener. When the percentage reaches this maximum, new sockets are created. The number of sockets created equals the current number of waiting sockets multiplied by the percentage specified in the FwxListenerToCreatePercent property.
This property is read/write.

' Data type: Long Property FwxListenerMaxPercent( _ ByVal lFwxListenerMaxPercent As long, _ ByVal plFwxListenerMaxPercent As long _ ) As Long
A 32-bit integer that specifies the maximum percentage of sockets that are waiting for the first block of data out of the total number of sockets that are waiting for an incoming connection or for the first block of data on a Web listener.
These property methods return S_OK if the call is successful; otherwise, they return an error code.
This property is read/write. Its default value is 40, and its range of permissible values is from 1 through 99. In common scenarios, there is no need to deviate from the default value. This value should be adjusted only for achieving improved performance.
For each Web listener, the Microsoft Firewall service initially creates 50 sockets that wait to accept a new incoming connection and to receive the first block of data. As each of these sockets completes its tasks of accepting a new incoming connection and receiving the first block of data, a new waiting socket is created for the Web listener.
Some of the waiting sockets can be in a state in which they have accepted an incoming connection, but have not received the first block of data. The Firewall service monitors the number of sockets in this state for each Web listener and maintains the percentage of waiting sockets that are in this state between the minimum percentage specified by the FwxListenerMinPercent property and the maximum percentage specified by the FwxListenerMaxPercent property. When the percentage drops to the minimum value, the Firewall service stops creating new waiting sockets for the Web listener until the number of waiting sockets decreases by the current number multiplied by the percentage specified in the FwxListenerToKillPercent property. When the percentage reaches the maximum value, the Firewall service creates new waiting sockets for the Web listener. The number of sockets created equals the current number of waiting sockets multiplied by the percentage specified in the FwxListenerToCreatePercent property.
After the value of this property has been modified, the change must be written to persistent storage by calling the Save method on an object containing FPCLowLevelSettings as a subobject, and the Microsoft Firewall service must be restarted for the change to take effect. For more information about restarting the Firewall service to apply changes, see Restarting Services After Configuration Changes.
