(U)RG:  Urgent Pointer field significant
(A)CK:  Acknowledgment field significant
(P)SH:  Push Function
(R)ST:  Reset the connection
(S)YN:  Synchronize sequence numbers
(F)IN:  No more data from sender

and two "unused" fields.

If you don't already own it, I recommend purchasing "TCP/IP Illustrated,
volume 1" by Dr. Richard Stevens.  It is an invaluable reference for anyone
involved with networking, systems administration or information security.

Subject: [Snort-users] TCP flags

This is probably an easy one, but I can't seem to find it....

When running snort (with -dev), there are 8 asterisks for flags (one is a
letter, to denote the presence of a flag, I presume).

Are these spelled out anywhere?
