Could you do a transfer of about 5MB and capture the entire TCP session
with tcpdump on the source *and* target machine at the same time? I'll
have a look at it to find out why TCP is unable to open the window.
tcpdump -n -i bge0 -p -w dump_source "tcp host 188.8.131.52"
And then make the two files available somewhere I can download them.
