whenever TCP is being used, you should always consider the latency
factor as that determines the theoretical max connection bandwidth.
The main things you can check for are to make sure that your systems
support TCP window scaling and maybe even TCP SACK, eg most UNIX type
systems have window scaling enabled but most MS windows do not.
