[PD] exact meaning of netsend outlet

Dear list,

wondering what the exact meaning of the outlet of [netreceive] in TCP
mode is:

Does it indicate whether Pd through the OS was able to open a port
does it indicate if a TCP packet arrived at the destination?

And: Am I correct assuming that netsend only outputs a message when it
got a (send ...) message into its inlet? So there is no way to indicate
whether the receiving machine is online unless I keep sending
heartbeat/ping messages?

thank you for your help!
