SubjectRe: Feedback on TCP: Make TCP_RTO_MAX a variable

I have no idea. An option would be to use private managed links, but
that would cost about 100 times as much, and I would not be able to
administer the machines via the internet.

With programs that scan and probe the internet, widely available for
every script-kiddies entertainment, I believe this is, as I said, a
standard characteristic of the internet, and I must live with it. Had
this been an actual DOS attack on my client, rather than the normal,
random attention from said script-kiddies, reducing TCP_RTO_MAX would
not have helped.
