I'm using 5.21 on a desktop computer with a dial-up modem. I tend to have several applications simultaneously sharing the connection, and I'm finding that this aspect isn't working as well as it does under windows 98.
Under windows each tcp socket would tend to receive at about the same rate, and intermittent, interactive applications would quickly gain their fair share. Under FreeBSD a couple of sockets at a time tend to hog most of the bandwidth, and interactive applications get frozen out. I don't know what Windows is doing right, but I'm guessing it has some kind collective management of tcp window sizes, probably tied-in with the slow-start algorithm. Is there any relevant setting I can alter in FreeBSD 5.x to improve it's behaviour? _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
