Hello Jassim,

Try to googling "windows username lenght" , it takes me 1 minutes to find
that

user: 14 is the max for NT4 compatibility. 127 is the AD limit
comp: The absolute maximum name length is 15 for any type of networking that
uses the NetBIOS API

320 per RFC 2821, which is broken down as follows: 64 for the local part
(user), 255 for the domain part, plus the separator (@).
5. IP Address


IPv4: 15
IPv6: 45 in the alternate form (last 32 bits written as four decimal
octets), 39 in the standard form.
