Dear sir,

Hello, my name is Adam Plesniak and I am doing some summer work with tcptrace and tcpdump and I had a few questions about the output of your program. At the bottom of a connection, the program lists the feilds < minowin:, maxowin:, averageowin:, and waverage owin:> What exaclty is an O window? And one more question, in reading recent papers aimed on predicting throughput of a connection mathematically, they refer to a Maximum Window variable which is constant during the duration of a transfer. From the tcptrace data, how can we derive this value to use in our own calculations. Any help you could give us would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for you time.
