Wireshark and Windows Scaling Citrix
Posted on 2014-12-23
I am using Wireshark to investigate some potential slowness issues on Citrix. I access Citrix via a landing page which gives me the usual choice of Citrix options to launch. On the initial communication with the Citrix web page my machine sends a Windows scaling size. The receiving Citrix server does not respond back with a WS size. The server Citrix landing page is on is 2008. Is this normal, I would expect to see a WS size also coming from the server response but I am new to this so not quite sure.
Client Sends =54062→http [SYN] Seq=0 Win=8192 Len=0 MSS=1460 WS=256 SACK_PERM=1
Server responds =http→54062 [SYN, ACK] Seq=0 Ack=1 Win=8192 Len=0 MSS=1460 SACK_PERM=1
