Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In the registry of Windows XP can find the following options to enable optimizations for TCP/ IP:

- MSS;
- TCP Rx Window Size;
- SACK (Selective Acknowledgment);
- ECN (Explicit Congestion Notification);
- TCP Window Scaling;
- TCP Timestamping;
- PMTU Discovery;
- TCP Fast Retransmit;
- TCP Fast Recovery;
- Delayed ACK.

For example, under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\interfaceGUID on parameter IPAddress [REG_MULTI_SZ] can find the interface and configure a specific network card.

I can manipulate the values ​​of the parameters programmatically and see the results.

I am interested in a list of similar parameters in Linux Mandriva. And yet - can i change its from a Java-code?

Thank you!

Have you simply tried running man tcp on your system? It gives you a list of options for TCP/IP stack and explanations for them. You can also look at this website – Karlson Jan 17 '13 at 16:46
