What is the ACK Number in the acknowledgement that is returned from the server for this packet? Answer: A)2800, B)1400. f. Suppose TCP uses AIMD for its congestion control without slow start. Assuming cwnd increases by 2 MSS every time a batch of ACKs is received and assuming approximately constant round- trip times, how long does it take for cwnd to increase from 4 MSS to 12 MSS (assuming no loss events)? ECE374: First Midterm 3 Answer: It takes 1 RTT to increase CongWin to 6 MSS; 2 RTTs to increase to 8 MSS; 3 RTTs to increase to 10 MSS; 4 RTTs to increase to 12 MSS. g. Assume two neighboring nodes in Circular DHT. Node A has ID 1100 and node B’s ID is 1111. Another peer (neither A nor B) in the ring searches for key 1110. Is either A or B sending a reply message to the requesting node informing that it holds the <key, value> pair? Answer: B. h. Cable and DSL are two residential Internet access technologies.
