Hi,

I've come accross the following anomoloies while auditing a network, can anyone help explain what they are:

3) Ports where the TTL is different on the SYN reply to the rest of the connection. ipid's also imply that different hosts are handling the SYN and the rest of the connection.

I've seen that on a server behind a Cisco PIX firewall with SYN flood protection enabled. The firewall handles connection setup itself and once the handhsake is complete, establishes the connection with the server behind it. If the handshake is not complete the server never sees any of it.

Alla.
