- Causes the current packet or connection (depending on the context of the event) to be discarded. Nothing is sent to the client.
- Marks the corresponding entry from the system connection table for immediate timeout. The flow will be deleted when the reaping process next runs. Until then packets will be accepted to the flow. This is noticable at high packet rates. Note that, in the case of TCP, if subsequent segments arrive without SYN bit set (and ACK bit unset), a RST will be sent as a result. This is the standard behavior when segments of that type arrive when there is no system connection entry.
