All TCP streams begin with the handshake, yet so often its power to determine fault in low throughput, connection failures, and hideous user experience streams is unrecognized. If you can capture the handshake in Wireshark, troubleshooting time is greatly minimized. This session will cover the handshakes from the single required option to the complex option combinations, and how they affect the subsequent conversation.
