Actully, the buffer size you use to transmit receive is not critical at all. It has to be large enoug in orther to not have too much OnDataSent or OnDataAvailable events triggeres which would consume CPU and in case you have a slow CPU, you couldn't sustain the line speed when the line speed is high (such as Gigabit). If the buffer is too large, it is simply a waste on memory.
In the http component, the buffer is used in a way that the maximum header line must fit into the receive buffer. A part from that, the buffer could be reduce without significant impact. To send files, it is better to have a buffer which is a multiple of the maximum packet size (MTU). But if you have several physical layers (LAN and PPP for example), it is difficult to adjust the buffer size dynamically. All in all, 4KB is a good value in most situations. -- Contribute to the SSL Effort.
