What is the maximum value that a receiver can set in its advertising window

Last updated on April 18, 2022

        I know an advertising window is set by the receiver to inform the sender not to send more than what is advertised in the receiver's window to avoid packet loss due to overflow of packets at receiver(Flow control). This window size is 16 bits(65535 is the max value). So this limits sender from sending more than 65535 bytes?
