Can someone explain the "TCP parameters" under "Squeezebox Home /
Server Settings / Network "
Whats does each mean, do, effects on changing them etc.
Can't find docs on this at all.

Thanks

Maximum number of TCP sockets to read per pass:
Maximum number of TCP sockets to write per pass:
Maximum number of simultaneous TCP connections to accept:

those only matter if you have a lot (say, 20 or 30 as indicated by the
defaults) of simultaneous clients. Tweaking them should have no effect
if you jast have one or two simultaneous clients. If you do, then this
will effect CPU and RAM usage under that situation.

Maximum number of bytes of audio data to send to player in a UDP packet

If your network is untrustworthy or passes through a known payload
limiter such as an IPSec VPN, you can set the payload smaller to improve
performance (at the cost of slightly more CPU). This is a "don't touch
it if it ain't broke" setting. One question for Dean-n-Sean though, does
this setting affect the new TCP protocol as well or do you just let TCP
Window Negotiation do its thing?
