To demonstrate the technique, the paper shows example probe procedures that examine three aspects of TCP. The results are informative: they reveal implementation flaws, protocol violations, and the details of design decisions in five vendor-supported TCP implementations. The results of our experiment suggest that active probing can be used to test TCP implementations.
