Wireshark-users: Re: [Wireshark-users] Initial Window Question

This is normal Windows behavior. There are registry changes you can make 
to coax it into using larger bursts, but you'll have to set it on all 
windows machines connecting to this server. Are you trying to fix a 
problem like poor performance?

[Wireshark-users] Initial Window Question

Hi everyone,

I'm using Windows XP Pro on my server and according to the documentation 
the Initial Window size is set to 2 segments. Sure enough Wireshark shows 
this clearly.  However one thing that bugs me, it increments to 3 segments 
and does not grow anymore beyond that.  Total bytes are 4096 for these 3 
segments and the client receive window is 17kB.  Anyone has any idea why 
the window does not grow?
