Modifying TCP Parameters

I have a program that constantly transmits data over an unreliable connection. The connection goes up and down frequently. With the current configuration of TCP, once the link is re-established, it can take up to a minute to continue transmission. How can I either change my program (which uses bulk read() & write() commands) or change the networking implementation in the kernel to shorten the re-establishment time?

This will probably help:

http://www.die.net/doc/linux/man/man7/tcp.7.html

You need the sysctl:

tcp_keepalive_intvl

This is normally set at about a minute, hence up to a minute to continue transmission.

tcp_fin_timeout

may help with read()

HTH:)
