Charter for Working Group
The TCP Large Windows Working Group is chartered to produce a
specification for the use of TCP on high-delay, high-bandwidth paths.
To this end, this working group recommended ``TCP extensions for
long-delay paths'' (RFC 1072), and ``TCP Extension for High-Speed
Paths'' (RFC 1185)
be published jointly as a Proposed Standard. Deficiencies in
the technical details of the documents were identified by the
End-to-End Research Group of the IRTF. Rather than progress the
standard with known deficiencies, the IESG tasked the End-to-End
Research Group to fix and merge these two documents into a single
protocol specification document. This review was done on the
firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list.
The TCP Large Windows Working Group is being resurrected for a one
time meeting, to review and if appropriate, approve this new document.
|Done||Review the TCP Extended Window Size proposal from the IRSG End to End Research Group and if acceptable, recommend it for Standards status.|
