Can someone decipher some of these? I am no entirely sure what the last
component of each line indicates. I thought it was TCP flags (SYN, FIN
etc) but if that is true then what order are they in? Certainly not the
same order as declared in RFC793 which would be UAPRSF.

The source is apparently an NT4 box (according to nmap -O).
