TCP/IP performance in asymmetric networks can be affected by the reverse data path throughput. This could be naturally due the low bandwidth available on that link or because of some background traffic. We present some solutions to improve TCP performance in such conditions. These solutions need a minimal number of modifications in the actual network configuration.
