Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

for example to transmit some 'x' 2 gb files from unix server to mainframe sys,
can the transfer of files be made faster by increasing the window size
or the send buffer size of the current TCP/IP configuration
and base link is T1-fiber link.
already n/w bandwidth utilization on our link is around 70%.
Am just thinking of ways to effectively transmit the files...
If my memory serves me right, you'll need to have a look not only to the TCP/IP packet size, but also
to the size of the physical packets ("frames") on your T1.
This is not the same as your bandwidth (1544 kbps).
Your frame size depends only on your physical network protocol (Ethernet, Token Ring, etc).
When you have bigger frames, you can send out bigger TCP/IP packets. If you don't, your bigger packets will
simply get "cut up" in pieces just before physical transmission.
