Well, about two weeks since my last announcement, but I figured I should
do another one.
I've cut a new release of TCP/IP for RSX, and I encourage everyone to
update to this latest release.
A short list of changes since my last release:
. I've worked some on the documentation, and filled out some parts that
were previously TBD.
. Performance improvements. In general, I've improved file transfer
performance by about 20% by tuning when TCP ACK messages as well as
window updates are sent. On links where packets are dropped from time to
time, the performance improvements can be significantly higher.
. Bugfix. Retry counter were incorrectly reset under some circumstances.
. Bugfix. TCP did not resend an ACK if the same data was received twice.
. Bugfix. TCP sockets could erronously be left in a closed state with
no task. However, looking at the socket, it looked like a task was
. Size calculation for stream type files in RSX mode was done incorrectly.
. I've included a precompiled version of PCL.TSK
As usual, the distribution is available from:
The documentation is also available through ftp on Mim, or also at
