TCP settings mac?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was reading from this site
Link to Site that you can change the tcp settings for a better connection...

Now this is the string of codes to enter in the terminal:

net.inet.tcp.mssdflt=1460
net.inet.tcp.sendspace=262144
net.inet.tcp.recvspace=262144
net.inet.udp.recvspace=74848
net.inet.udp.maxdgram=65535


Are these even correct...Might be the wrong section to ask this but its for mac osx and dont know if the Networking thread gurus would be able to help with this one...
I think thins is mostly for sharing on your network...
I have a macbook air and my pops has a macbook pro and a macmini for storage purposes...and some minor editing programs...

i think this is mostly for that but im hesitant to apply these because i dont know if it would not only increase the strength of sharing on the network but also upload rates to say drop box or using builtin uploaders from lightroom or aperture to flickr, along with other websites..
Dont know though still searching around

Do you have issues currently?

I've only seen this mentioned for tweaking buffers in the instance that you are using an Apple TV wirelessly and are dropping frames, etc.

Ahhhhhh I see.

In that case I would personally just test scenarios instead of changing TOO many things. You might tweak your head off and break something which would be super hard to work out later. Just my thoughts, since you aren't having problems. Plus you could point him here and we'd help =)

Maybe someone else will have some input.

Who is your internet provider?

[edit]

The reason I ask is that I have AT&T, and unless you use a public DNS such as Google or Hurricane Electric, your internet is going to suck ballz. AT&T has distributed DNS servers all over the country, and depending on where your internet traffic is going, it'll automatically move you to the closest DNS server. The problem with that is that it's CONSTANTLY switching you to different DNS servers, which can cause dropped connections, page interrupts, etc.

Took me a while to nail that problem down, but once we put our router on HE's DNS, everything worked beautifully.

BUT, if you're not having any problems, just leave it alone. The old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
