Notice the ACK from vm.se.lsoft.com is off by one, but the timestamp
option corresponds. Looks to be a bug with the vm machine, the bang
machine is behaving properly per the TCP requirements.
Now you're confusing me.
(1) There is no ACK sent from vm.se.lsoft.com. The only ACKs sent
are i the other directions, as per the tcpdumps above.
(2) The ACKs are not off by one, or if you prefer, ACKs on TCP are
always off by one. They are one higher than one would expect.
