First thing I want to do is thank everyone who came out to the virtual pub quiz events at www.coreitpros.com/quiz.
I thought it would be helpful to pick some questions, explain the answers and possibly show you a few tips or tricks along the way. The statement in the quiz was “The appropriate response to a TCP SYN is ____” and the correct answer is SYN ACK.
I think the word “appropriate” may have thrown some people off. When I say appropriate I mean a successful connection because the connection request might fail.
In this video I will show you how to prove or disprove the answer.
