Since everyone else has thrown their two bits in, it could also mean
that you have a busy server, and that you are exceeding 200
connections/sec, and that this is limiting the number of connections
we fully close per second. If you are testing a web server over
gige w/ small files, you will usually run into this problem..
Upding the sysctl net.inet.icmp.icmplim will increase this limit.
Yes, I know it's not intuitive the ICMP limit is responsible for
TCP RST's, but that's the way it is...
