Difference between "Connection accepts" and "Connection requests"
In output from netstat (e.g. "netstat -p tcp -a | grep -i conn"), I see
2755505 connection requests
340186 connection accepts
3086161 connections established (including accepts)
3428998 connections closed (including 2379842 drops)
0 connections with ECN capability
785 embryonic connections dropped
119647 Connections dropped due to bad ACKs
What's the difference between the connection-lines? Specifically: What's
the difference between "connection requests" and "connection accepts"? Is
it normal that the former is >> than the latter?
