Hi group

I'm testing my RTEMS socket server application and run into problems with 
a fast client.

Tracking down the problem seems to arise from a default ACK delay of 200 
ms for TCP.

>From within my network.c it seems that the fec rx daemon should not invoke

    rtems_bsdnet_event_receive (INTERRUPT_EVENT | FATAL_INT_EVENT,
        RTEMS_NO_TIMEOUT, &events);

this way.

To get an immediate ACK is it correct to replace RTEMS_NO_TIMEOUT by '1' 
is there another location to setup ACK handling for TCP?
