In my linux host, I noticed that linux is sending RESET just after it receives SYNC-ACK. Note that there is no active firewall in the box. If I reboot linux box, issue disappears, but same doesn't work after "service networking restart".

Here is capture screenshoot.

May I know no. of reasons for this scenario ?

As per @Jasper answer, here are more details. 1) I am using telnet host 80 to validate things 2) linux date command results seems right without any issue.

Either the client socket is closed already when the SYN/ACK arrives, or you've got timestamp problems, which is hard to tell because you posted an incomplete screenshot.

Since I am using telnet to validate things, I keep open telnet until it says "Connection failed...."

Looks like its the timestamp value that does this. Check Christians answer in this question:

Thanks a lot. It was tcp timestamps issue. It worked successfully after echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_timestamps. I will make permanent changes in /etc/sysctl.conf

Just out of curiosity: What OS do you exactly?

It's debian, running on ARM SBC.
