TCP/UDP Connection States documentation

user1529891 asked:

Does anyone know where to find documentation for TCP/UDP connection states? Preferably non-Microsoft with unix backing.

Basically, I’m looking for more information about TCP established, TCP syn_sent, TCP close, UDP assured, etc. network states.

My answer:

Start with RFC 793 (TCP) and RFC 768 (UDP).
