Snort flags SYN Question


Does any one know what the different options are and mean for snort flags with the syn option. Example below:

alert external_ip any -> internal_ip 8080 (flags:S,12; msg "Possible SYN scan"

I know 12 has to do with finding a syn packets regardless of the values of the reserved bits.

Could anyone clarify this more? Also are there other options?

Thanks

I see you already got answered on the snort-users ML.
Adding any replies that cleared it up for you would be cool.
