I currently have a TCP server that always listens for an incoming client, then it sends one packet of data every single second. Bur I have a quick question: Does a SYN/ACK packet only get sent on initial connections, like this:
SYN
ACK
DATA
DATA
DATA
Or is it sent with every packet, like this:
SYN
ACK
DATA

SYN
ACK

SYN
ACK
DATA
Thanks for the help.
