I am trying different congestion control algorithms for getting maximum throughput and minimum delay across my setup for TCP flow.Please suggest other available algorithms apart from

Veno, Westwood ,Reno and Cubic

whose implementation (or Kernel Modules) are freely available on Internet ?? And also suggest if there is some other way of obtaining higher throughput in tcp runs between linux (Fedora) and Windows 7's tcp protocol stack at different ends.

Which one would be the sender? Linux or Windows? Congestion control always just affects one direction and you don't have to configure it symmetrically. – artistoex Apr 3 '13 at 23:44

Relentless TCP would be the most relentless TCP you could get.
