CF3x5#(config)sh config

...
!- BEGIN networking
tcp-ip rfc-1323 disable
!- END networking
...

CF3x5#(config)tcp-ip rfc-1323 enable

Blue Coat recommends that RFC 1323 remains enabled in production environment because it improves performance, especially for large downloads. The only reason to toggle the RFC 1323 setting is for troubleshooting purpose and it should be re-enabled once troubleshooting is completed.
