You don't say which end is running the server and which is the client.
I'll assume that lwIP is the webserver (and so is on and
the PC is the client (on

>From this it looks like the PC opens a connection fine, sends an HTTP
request, and then immediately sends a RST.  This is very odd.  It is not
in response (or lack or response) to something sent by lwIP as it
happens so soon after the HTTP request is sent, and the capture shows
two other connections working fine.  I can't see anything here that lwIP
is doing wrong.  The PC was obviously happy with the connection
establishment as it sent the HTTP request.  Windows does sometimes use a
RST rather than a FIN to close connections, but it can't be that in this
case as it is sending the RST before it has received the reply to its
HTTP request.  

I think it must be something at the PC end, either the test you are
running or the OS, deciding that the connection is no longer needed.
E.g. if you used a web browser and clicked on the "stop" button, it
might do this.  Or if the test you were running died the OS might abort
all its connections in this way.

Sorry I'm not of more help,
