Computer networking TCP file transfer limit

timer Asked: Jan 13th, 2014

Question description

Consider transferring an enormous file of L bytes from Host A to Host B. Assume an MSS of 536 bytes. a - What is the maximum value of L such that TCP sequence numbers are not exhausted? Recall that the TCP sequence number field has four bytes. b - For the L you obtained in (a), find how long it takes to transmit the file. Assume that a total of 66 bytes of transport, network and data-link header are added to each segment before the resulting packet is sent out over a 155 Mbps link. Ignore flow control and congestion control so A can pump out the segments back to back and continuously.
