You probably want to bump up the middle value (the default receive
window size - the values are "min default max"). It needs to be at
least bandwidth*latency ((512/8)*1.2), if not 2 or 3 times that to
get good TCP performance.
The fact that you get 60kbps (eventually) over your sat link
suggests the default is already big enough though.
1. TCP slow start takes a while to ramp up on high-latency links

Despite all appearances, your boss is a thinking, feeling, human being.
