    This was a question I got wrong on the CompTIA Exam I think.

  2. TCP Connect Scan. It is a full three way handshake. The host scanning
    sends a SYN, the machine responds with an ACK/SYN if the port is open or
    RST if it is closed, the host scanning responds back with an ACK (this
    responding ACK is optional).
