    TCP - Errors in captures

    Hi all,

    In a Packetcapture (during a 5 minute Period) there were the TCP Errrors.

    TCP Errors:
    Resets - 72
    Zero Windows - 29
    Duplicate Acks - 8
    Lost Segments - 6
    Out of Order - 5
    Retransmissions - 2

    What can cause the above errors?

    What is the impact of the above?

    Is this a problem?

    Yes it's a problem, but whether it's worth worrying about is another question. We need to know the total packets captured to know whether the errors are meaningful or just noise. We also need to know the size of the network - home computer or enterprise network.

    cheers, Paul
