Should probably add a section about Denial-of-service_attack#ICMP_floods. (talk) 17:42, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

The sentence "Nowadays, however, the term half-open connection is most often used to describe embryonic connections." should probably be rewritten as it is conjecture. -- (talk) 17:35, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Windows Limit[edit]

I think it is reasonable to include some discussion or mention of the limit that Windows XP SP2 imposed because a lot of people who came, and possibly even will come, to this page end up here while researching that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Synetech (talkcontribs) 21:52, 30 April 2014 (UTC)


I think most non-tech people reading this article are looking it up due to it's role in decentralized file sharing protocols. Something about this should be added (without getting into specifics, just mention why Windows' limit can be undesirable in some situations)... Also, I think it should be merged with Transmission Control Protocol#Connection establishment, which I find to be a better technical explanation. 2602:306:37F5:C5B0:DD49:3637:5BF7:2E07 (talk) 22:46, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
