%X We prove the correctness of a two\-way sliding window
   protocol with piggybacking, where the acknowledgments of the
   latest received data are attached to the next data
   transmitted back into the channel. The window size of both
   parties are considered to be finite, though they can be of
   different sizes. We show that this protocol is equivalent
   (branching bisimilar) to a <i>pair of FIFO</i>
   queues of finite capacities. The protocol is first modeled
   and manually proved for its correctness in the process
   algebraic language of &mu;CRL. We use the theorem prover
   PVS to formalize and to mechanically prove the correctness.
   This implies both safety and liveness (under the assumption
   of fairness).
