Exercise 3: Changing TCP to compete with UDP

In previous exercise, the TCP flow seems to occupy a little less share of the bandwidth. Can you modify the existing TCP (Tahoe) implementation in ns-2 and make it more aggressive? In the following, we will show an example that we have talked about in the lecture, i.e., the TCP Jump Start. You are encouraged to explore other simple tricks by looking at tcp.h in ns.
