Well, that's fine if you can get the window to be larger than 64K. I
couldn't find a way to do it, and Microsoft was no help. I was using ATM
with large delays or a WAN link, so I need something like 150K windows.
I opted for multiple sessions for my measurements. This turned out to be
useful enough for my purposes. Adding the throughput #'s give you a good
idea of what's what.
