  1. Hi Rene,

    I saw that you double the window size to 128000 and 256000 etc, and I know that window size filed on TCP header with size of 16 byte which mean the maximum window size = 65536 bits ( maximum IP packet size ), so how is it possible to double up over than that value ??

    Rene/ Andrew, I came across that CISCO can be used and iperf client and server for testing such tests? Any insight? or usable link?

  3. You can use Iperf to test optimal window sizes yes, that's what I did in this lesson:

    Cisco VIRL allows you to add delay to interfaces so you can simulate satellite links:

    I haven't tested this before but it might be nice to try.

  4. Hi Rene

    On the bandwidth delay product your conversion from ms to second is not correct.
    You converted 1ms to 0.01 seconds, this is not correct.
    1ms =0.001seconds


  5. Hello Raul

    Yes you are correct, thanks for picking that up. I will let @ReneMolenaar know. Here’s the specific part that is incorrect:

    The 1 ms should be 10 ms or the value in the equations should be 0.001

    Thanks again!
