Can someone clarify the calculated Windows size in a capture, is this the reciever buffer/window on the source

If the source is the client, then the calculated windows size is on the client side

however if the source is the server is the calculated windows size the server or still the client side

It is the calculated window size on the system that sent that packet. Packets from the client will have the client's window size; packets from the server will have the server's window size. Packets from the sender wil have the sender's window size; packets from the receiver will have the receiver's window size. With every packet, each system tells the other one, "This is how much space I have for incoming data."
