Some time ago, there was a discussion of retransmission
timeout algorithms on this forum. To those still interested in the
topic I would like to point out that a survey of various algorithms
and their problems was published recently:

Jain Raj, "Divergence of Timeout Algorithms for Packet Retransmissions",
IEEE Phoenix Conference on Computer Communications, Phoenix, AZ,
March 27-28, 1986, pp. 174-179.

The paper has 17 references to other papers on the subject. If you can't
find the proceedings in your local library, I would be happy
to mail you a reprint. Please send your U. S. Mail address to
