Normal TCP/IP implementations send an ACK(nowledgement) back to the
originator to notify that packets were successfully received and do not
need to be retransmitted.
A good implementation will only ACK every so often, and not for every
single packet. This is determined by the window size.
Sounds like it's working, to me.
