My question is about TCP parameters in Linux. By now, I want to change the default values of:
- Initial Timeout
- ACK Delay
- Idle Connection Timeout
I have a Linux Box with kernel 2.6.x and 2 ethernet interfaces. I know TCP is a stack that doesn't have anything to do with ethernet devices. Said that, the question: is there a way to set custom values for each interface? For example, a server listening to connections in eth0 would use one value for Idle Connection Timeout and another server listening to connections in eth1 could use a different value for that parameter.
Any considerations will be appreciated.
