question about host-timeout

Hi folks,

I had a question about the host-timeout. I have a firewall which is
rejecting connections, as opposed to dropping silently, and nmap is
timing out the scan.

From what I observe, it seems to me even if nmap is receiving
rejections, it will still time out the host. Is that the case? Or am I
reading that wrong.

I guess I figured that if nmap was still receiving _something_ from the
host, that it would not time it out. Where as if it was receiving
nothing from the host, due to dropped packets, that it would then time
the host out.

Thanks in advance,
