I have a book called "Linux Firewalls" 2nd edition by Robert L. Ziegler (New
Riders publication) for my firewall stuff. Pg 324-327 break apart the TCP
and UDP packets nicely, and easily. (The first edition was ipchains, which I
still use...but I am preparing for iptables for when I get 8.1 :D
Although, it pretty much just has the same info that Anders Johansson
replied with, but with slightly more detail.
The only thing I can't seem to find...what is the "OPT" line is about?
