Thanks Martin. The server sends back the data, I have checked it with
wireshark. I am able to sniff and see the data.

This program is not using any complex protocol, it is simple "tcp"
based text protocol. first of all am not able to read anything from
the server.

One more thing I would like to add is the async_connect() is called
from a thread, the io_service is also inside the thread. there are
multiple treads like this. But I have tried removing the thread, that
too does not mak any difference. I have also tried blocking
connect(),write(), and read(), now also the read fails!

If this post is not clear, I am ready to post my code...
