Re: Idea: Use results from host discovery phase in port scan phase

Interestingly, this command:
nmap -PE -p 443 encrypted.google.com
also shows the host as up, but only generates one SYN-SYN/ACK-RST
handshake, indicating that the man page is incorrect in its ordering
of the probes.
Are you sure? You haven't specified a TCP host discovery in the command
above, so exactly one SYN is expected.
Rereading this, I don't know what I was thinking. You're absolutely
right. I'll test again, in case I was correct about a different
command-line, but this one works exactly as expected.
