Why exactly does an ICMP echo packet with a specified TTL not fit for 
your needs, what are you attempting to prove or do?

These you can do using ICS raw sockets, provided you are an 
administrator operator and are using Window 2000 or XP prior to SP2, 
Microsoft has now stopped raw sockets being used since spammers use 
them to fake IP addresses.

This would only happen if the SYN packet failed, it's standard TCP.
