Receiving multiple packet TCP data with Colfire Lite

I am writing a Coldfire Lite application based on application note AN3518 (HTTP client). My current application does 2 consecutive HTTP GET requests to receive the data I need.

But I want to receive the required data in a different way, using one HTTP POST request.

AN3518 does not contain the HTTP POST request so I wrote this myself. This works fine, but my current problem is that the received data is contained in 3 TCP packets that have to be reassembled into the actual data. I have no idea if Coldfire Lite has this functionality implemented or not. If anyone has experience with this please let me know.

I am also looking for information about TCP packets. What's inside the header? How does the hand shaking work? Any info is greatly appreciated!
