  1. It's not called RWIN, however there is an equivalent value... Rwin, and rmem are both simply TCP/IP parameters..So they are universal. OSX has an equivalent value to RWIN rmem_default - default rx window rmem_max - maximum rx window there you go not trying to start a fight..just trying to prove my point ____ and back to tweaking on linux... I'm in the middle of setting up this: http://powertweak.sourceforge.net/index.html Hopefully it'll make changing network setting easier and more fun.
  2. Ahh...but it's still going to be a good idea to manually calculate your RWIN and put it in as the default value. Believe me man, you WILL see a boost. Besides, unless they've changed, Redhat, Slackware, and maybe SuSe do NOT figure up the best RWIN for you...and it defaults them to ..64kb? I dunno..I heard something about it at one of the local meets, because the guy was having slow network transfer speeds...
  3. Btw...who is swimmer shugz? Sounds like an interesting character... I might wanna talk to him on MSN or AIM. Ahh..only a year on linux and I've already decided to become a unix systems administrator. Just started college this fall.
  4. you CAN change the RWIN....but on ubuntu/kubuntu, i found out it's a little different. Linux automatically measures different variables and tries to tune accordingly, but ...you can definitely see a boost from RWIN. I got a good 400kb boost just a bit ago... ahh...just dug this site up for you... guide to tweaking linux I played around with my sysctl.conf file until it got something done...just...everytime you make a change .."sudo sysctl -p" to ...apply the patch.
  5. Speedguide link ahhh...digged around a bit more...figured I'd post this on here for the general public, because I didn't come up with anything when I searched. Maybe save someone some trouble?
  6. Is there any power to be had? Is it already at optimal settings, or what? I honestly doubt that it is.
  7. ahhh..I might just have to hit up these forums again. It's always fun on here. I haven't been on in a WHILE though. If you want a hobby, get just a decent box ..512mb ram, a gfx card, a 40GB hard drive or something...and build an ubuntu/suse/[your distro] ....box. Always something to play with. ahh, gotta find the general forum and ask a question.
  8. Yeah, I was thinking maybe that...Do they still work on the Cox backbones? Did they ever finally switch over? Cox has been doing alot of upgrades in the Houston area I'm fairly certain.
