Description (partial)

- Even when the download does not fail as a hang, you can see stops. During both the stops and the hang you will see the TCP backoff mechanism taking place as TCP waits 3, 6, 12...seconds.
- The captures are taken from the ASA as well as the end device running the download. You will find that the inside interface and laptop are almost exactly the same even to the packet.
- The outside interface, on the other hand, is a mess. You will see tons of retransmissions, dup acks, and at the end the TCP backup off to a minute before cu kill the web connection.

FPR4120 running with http inspection enabled.
