Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Per the Wireshark wiki:

TCP Retransmission – Occurs when all the data in the packet has been seen in one or more previous packets.

TCP Fast Retransmission – Occurs when the sender retransmits a packet before the expiration of the acknowledgement timer. Senders should Fast Retransmit upon receipt of 3 duplicate ACKs.

In the IT trenches? So am I – read my IT-Trenches blog.
