hey guys,

I have been reading through TCP/IP Illustrated Vol 2 and the linux
source. I am having a heck of a time finding where it sees a SYN packet
and check to see if the desitination port is open. In the book it looks
like it happens in tcp_input where it looks for the PCB for a segment.
Any pointers would be greatly appeciated.
