Refer to section 9.9 of RFC 2616 (http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2616.html) for


   This specification reserves the method name CONNECT for use with a
   proxy that can dynamically switch to being a tunnel (e.g. SSL
   tunneling [44]).

Your 200 response indicates your are running apache as an open smtp
anonymous relay.

I don't know what significance those cntl-D cntl-A and cntl-E cntl-A are;
but they were also successful apparently.

Has anyone seen this before, and what is it attempting to do?
I haven't been able to find much information on Google regarding this
scan.  Manually attempting the same commands comes up 404.

Apache 1.3.x logs:
