To establish a connection: * The client sends a SYN packet to the server with a random sequence number (A). * The server replies with a SYN-ACK packet with an acknowledgement number set to one more than the client's sequence number (A + 1) and its own random sequence number (B). * The client sends an ACK packet to the server with an acknowledgement number set to one more than the servers sequence number (B + 1) and a sequence number of the received acknowlegement number (A + 1). So, when you replay the traffic, that third stage goes wrong (basically, you send the wrong B+1 value).
