What is actual difference b/w these two?
1) I have gone through many tutorials on Youtube where some have told that Window Size is what total packet size it can receive eg Window Size is 15000 bytes
and MSS is what maximum packet size can be sent is single time eg 1500bytes i.e it can send 10 packets of 1500 each to make it 15000.
2) But in some other tutorials i studied that Window Size is like after how many bytes of data it expects acknowledgement.
If 2) is correct then why timeout period is used in Flow Control Mechanism?
