You need to use "ndd" commmand to change the parameters.
eg:
/usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_wscale_always 1

the syntax for ndd command is:
 ndd /dev/tcp [parameter]
and set with:
  ndd -set /dev/tcp [parameter] [value]

RFC1323 timestamps, window scaling and RFC2018 SACK should be enabled by default. You can double check that these are correct:

man ndd
to learn more details

To enable High Performance Data Transfers:
  ndd /dev/tcp tcp_wscale_always  #(should be 1)
  ndd /dev/tcp tcp_tstamp_if_wscale  #(should be 1)
  ndd /dev/tcp tcp_sack_permitted  #(should be 2)
Set the maximum (send or receive) TCP buffer size an application can request:

  ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_max_buf 4000000
Set the maximum congestion window:

  ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_cwnd_max 4000000
Set the default send and receive buffer sizes:

  ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_xmit_hiwat 4000000
  ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_recv_hiwat 4000000

   Please read the link in rsivanandan's comment and the following Sun doc:

Thanks for the link... But there is alot of explanation and not talked about how to change...

Do you know which parameter is exactly for changing window size in TCP/IP and changing just window param can prevent from OS detection by softwares?
