According to the discussion on NANOG
Windows Vista, and next week Mac OS X Leopard introduced a significant improvement to the TCP stack, Window Auto-Tuning. FreeBSD is committing TCP Socket Buffer Auto-Sizing in FreeBSD 7. I've also been told similar features are in the 2.6 Kernel used by several popular Linux distributions.
Today a large number of consumer / web server combinations are limited
to a 32k window size, which on a 60ms link across the country limits
the speed of a single TCP connection to 533kbytes/sec, or 4.2Mbits/ sec.
Users with 6 and 8 MBps broadband connections can't even fill their
pipe on a software download.
Does anyone know
I don't see a word about this in the "Mac OS X Server Upgrading and Migrating For Version 10.5 Leopard" document.
