It's hard to tell. Can you do a packet capture on both sides to see who sends TCP "FIN"? When one side sends FIN to close a TCP connection but its peer does not response, we will get "half close timeout"

Re: half close time outs on firewalls

so should my side send a fin ack to complete the close ?

i am gathering the client side is timing out and so sends a fin, is this right ?

Re: half close time outs on firewalls

I am not sure what happened exactly until looking into a sniffer capture.
