Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Does anyone know where to find documentation for TCP/UDP connection states? Preferably non-Microsoft with unix backing.

Basically, I'm looking for more information about TCP established, TCP syn_sent, TCP close, UDP assured, etc. network states.

To add to this; Linux kernel docs on the TCP tunables: kernel.org/doc/Documentation/networking/nf_conntrack-sysctl.txt –  josten Mar 2 at 17:24

Start with RFC 793 (TCP) and RFC 768 (UDP).
