Delayed Ack
Authored by: Ripcord on May 18, '05 10:23:47PM

Another one that's supremely useful on any network with packet drops (internet, wireless networks, etc) is

sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.newreno=1

...This turns on a much more sophisticated TCP algorithm that works very well in 10.3 and 10.4. If packets get drops it recovers much more quickly and efficiently. On many networks it's like night and day.

This is something that's been standard in BSD for many years, I have no idea why Apple doesn't enable it by default?
