I doubt if that would help.

I claim no expertise in this area, but perhaps we can
get some protocol gurus interested.

To recap:

You're sending and receiving FTP/TCP/IP4 to Solaris and AIX hosts
You have a 1000kbyte window size
You have an 80 megabit/sec pipe.
You're getting 1.8 megabits/sec.

What is the round-trip time on the WAN?

Packet loss?

Does the problem occur in both directions?

Are you _sure_ the window size is being set correctly? How
is it being set?

Are you able to generate TCP dumps when the problem is happening?
