Anyone with good knowledge of TCP?
I understand that the TCP RST flag is set when the connection becomes
unsynchronised. Is there any other reason for reseting a connection?
If SERVER sends a packet with RST=1 does CLIENT respond at all? Should we
see an ACK from CLIENT for the packet containing RST=1?
Or does CLIENT just start up the three way handshake again?
ALSO – And this is the real big question…… If, over the course of about
4 hours, I see about 18 – 20 RST packets between a client and differnet servers, is
this something to worry about?
We are having “delayed write” errors between the clients and a number of
servers and suspect that something (ISA?) is dropping frames.
Any help or TCP gurus out there would be magic!
