Thanks very much, Lee. My head's whirring. Am I right in thinking by turning
on scaling (which I just did) then the window size is automatically set ?
I'll do some more reading.
I'm looking at TSO too as above, mentioned by Nickola. I'll maybe risk
changing it with ethtool during a quiet network moment.
I've just discovered the netstat -s command which gives loads more info than
anything else I've come across. Any pointers about window size or TSO  from
the output appreciated :-)
Thanks again,
