Yes, I know, but I programmed my server so it would send that reply (HTTP 200 OK) to the third machine instead of the client. Then, this third machine sends the HTTP 200 OK (or any other HTTP format reply) back to the client. So you are right, my server does not send a reply to the client. I use HTTP messages but I do not follow the common request-reply sequence between client and server
