[ipxe-devel] Is it possible to alter the tcp window size in ipxe for an http download?

Here is an example script that we run. Very simple, but we have problems
over high latency lines (160ms). The window didn't seem to get larger than
5192. It takes about 7 mins to download a 15MB file where as after I
install CentOS and use wget it downloads in 1.5 secs. Is there a way to
tell ipxe to scale the window size?


Example script:

kernel http://ip_addr/tftp/slab/k root=/dev/ram
initrd http://ip_addr/tftp/slab/i
