Is this normal behaviour?

Looks pretty normal to me - some clients or servers terminate connections with a reset packet, because it's faster and needs less resources than the "normal" FIN-ACK teardown. So unless the reset appears before all the data is exchanged, it's nothing to worry about.

Your capture looks very normal to me.

Just to add up - It's probably something you don't want to hear - but whenever possible, do baselines !

  • You will be able to know what's going on in the network while everything runs OK
  • You will be able to know exactly how works a specific protocol / app in Wireshark, and when it fails, you'll be able to check any differences.

I often have co-workers asking : '' Hey, is that normal I have this in Wireshark for X specific thing '', and I'm unable to tell them if it's normal or not because it's something too specific I never see / no baseline.
