  • TCP OPEN TIMEOUT value and significance

    Based on what I've read in these posts, a TCP RECV will not return until either of these conditions
    • the buffer is full
    • it has waited the full timeout period.
    Is that correct?

    If so, in order to receive a blob of data quickly, you must use a very short timeout value since you are required to wait that length of time for the last packet of data, even if you have received the previous N packets very quickly. Is that correct?

    Thanks...

    Correct, or just send a known full buffer that can be ignored.
