If you don't have hping, you could also e.g. start a capture in wireshark or
so, then connect to your host with telnet and send it some garbage. Like this:

$ telnet 443
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.

Then apply the filter "ip.src==" (replace with
the values of your relay) in Wireshark and look at
"Internet Protocol -> Identification" for the packets wireshark captured.

Btw, it looks like your relay is affected.

I do not know of any way to disable this behavior on Windows machines, but I'm
also not very familiar with Windows.
