    SubjectRe: Excessive TCP retransmits over lossless, high latency link

    Why did you disable bith sacks and timestamps? Exactly to get
    maximal damage from long delay link?

    No patches to block send required ACKs exist of course. :-)

    All the problem is at sender, it mispredicts rtt.
    What OS is sender? If it is linux too, try to use default configuration
    not playing with /proc/sys/net/tcp_*, especially with timestamps
    and sacks and the situation should rectify.

    Also, please, send full (binary!) tcpdump from SYN and to FIN.
    Andi says right thing, but I am still puzzled why rtt is miscalculated
    it should be estimated correctly.

    Well, and if sender is not linux... no ideas.
