I have made a TCP three way handshake connection between FPGA board and PC, Then i have send a HTTP GET message from FPGA board to PC but i did'nt get HTTP reponse message from pc?

i hvae attached the Capture file through below this link.

The above file will be in .txt formatt so you open with in wire shark you can able to see capture Packets.

Note, changing the extension on a pcap file to .txt doesn't make it a text file. Simpler just to leave the extension alone, Google Drive is quite happy with pcap files.

The machine at (server) closed the connection immediately after it was opened with a FIN. Then (client) sent the HTTP GET, but the server, having said that it was closing the connection with the FIN, sends a RST.

Presumably you do have an HTTP server application listening on port 80 on the server?

Because something on the server caused the RST to be sent. Are you running an HTTP Server listening on port 80 on the server to service the request? Have you opened any necessary firewalls to allow it to communicate?

No, its not a HTTP server and didn't open firewall for its communication.

Presumably something is running to accept the TCP connection, whatever that is will have to respond to the HTTP GET appropriately.
