I have been searching around the WWW for a
 solution of my question .And I came across you working in a similar field. And 
this mail to is discuss with you abt my problem regarding Linux or any other OS 
and TCP/IP Protocols.

Actually I am a student of MTech Telecom . I am currently doing some kinda 
TCP/IP protocol manipulations.

My query:
If you are familiar abt the source routines for 
networking protocols like tcp_timer.c, tcp_input.c ,
tco_output.c , etc etc.

In tcp_timer.c there is a constant known as TCP_MAXRXTSHIFT indicating the 
meaximum no. of retransmissions allowed for a TCP segment/packet. This value is 
defined in tcp_timer.h --Currently this has defined as 12  in most of the OS 
and TCP/IP Protocols.
Here starts my problem , i need to change this value to some other value say 3 
or 5 something like that , and I want to see the effect.
I mean recompile the Operating System itself so that all the routines could see 
the change. But how to do this?
Do you have any idea ? Hope you can help me regarding this query?

Thanx for keeping ur patience reading this mail.
Hoping for a quick reply.
