TCP - Passive open connections: Is it possible for a passive open connection that is in LISTEN state, to move to a SYN-SENT state?

Hi,

We know that when client process that uses TCP comes up, it goes on to be a ACTIVE open connection by sending out a SYN message and moves to SYN-SENT state. However when a server process that is using TCP, comes up with a PASSIVE open connection and moves to LISTEN state, where it is awaiting a SYN message and eventually moves to SYN-RCVD state.

Is it possible for a passive open connection that is in LISTEN state, to move to a SYN-SENT state?
