I was under the impression that XP's default window size was 17,520 bytes,
rfc1323 options disabled.
Assuming 80ms and 45Mb/s, I come up with a window size of 440Kbytes required
to fill the pipe. At windows default I would only expect to see 220Kbs over
that same path.
I think even modern *nix OSs tend to have default window sizes in the 64kB
region, still not enough for that Bandwidth/delay.
