The contents of the key seem to be a list of supported network types. Looking at the debug output, the app enumerates the entries in both branches (under the Parameters key). So the only entries you would need would be for whatever network types are available on the linux system.

Also, I believe (not 100%) that it is not my app that looks at this key, but maybe the WSock2 DLL itself, when it gets loaded. My app simply listens for incoming tcp connections on one port. Nothing too exotic.

BTW: this is a server that is a backend to a proprietary (ie, not available publicly) graphics application suite . The network part is simply the doorway for processing requests.
