Is this normal iTunes behaviour?

    Just curious if this is normal. But I was attempting to use Winpwn for obvious reasons on a laptop that was not connected to Internet.

    When I plug my iPhone into my computer normally iTunes asks if I want to upgrade and whatnot as it does. But when I put my phone into DFU mode iTunes says that it cannot update because it can't connect to the server.

    Seems weird to me that in normal mode it would ask if I want to update and recognize my phone, but in DFU or recovery mode it wont even recognize my phone because it says it needs the Internet.

    iTunes need to connect to the server to download the firmware to restore the iPhone. It doesn't have the firmware files downloaded already.
