Configure the Winsock Buffer Size (pcAnywhere) (All Windows) Popular

Use this registry item to set the size in bytes of TCP's Winsock buffer. Using a large value may increase the throughput of connections where the delay is large in relation to the bandwidth. This includes Internet, ISDN, RAS, dial-up networking, WAN and satellite connections.

For example, if the delay between two end points is 500 msec (.5 sec), the default throughput will be limited to 8K / .5 sec = 16K/sec. By increasing the value to its maximum setting, the theoretical throughput will be 65535 / .5 sec = 128K/sec.
