Help understanding a trace of an nmap scan
From: Richard Moore <rich () westpoint ltd uk>

I wonder if anyone can help me make sense of this packet trace. It shows nmap running a connect scan against port 13 of a host. The part I don't
understand is why there are 3 RST packets sent to the target machine?

If it helps anyone the target host is a Debian box running 2.4.26 Linux kernel and the source machine was a RedHat box running 2.4.7-10. The
version of nmap used is 3.48.

Cheers

Rich.
