How TCP Works - Window Scaling

Hello packet-heads!

In this video we will look at the window scale option in TCP. How does this feature improve performance across high-bandwidth, high-latency connections? How does Wireshark come up with the Calculated Window Size field? How can we set the scale factor if we missed the handshake?

We'll answer all of these questions and more in this nine minute video.
