increasing rwin on client side during ftp download

Commsquare asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have a wireshark trace in which i see the receive window size of the client increasing from 5840
 initially to 774192 bytes at the end of the tcp connection. The client has Ubuntu 08.04 as OS. Which algorithm is responsible for increasing this rwin? Why does it increase, why doesn't it just start immediately with a bigger value?
