Identifying individual nameserver implementations is based on "borderline"
protocol behaviour. The DNS protocol offers a multitude of message bits,
response types, opcodes, classes, query types and label types in a fashion
that makes some mutually exclusive while some are not used in a query
messages at all.
Not every implementation offers the full set of features the DNS protocol
set currently has. Some implementations offer features outside the protocol
set, and there are implementations that do not conform to standards.
Amongst the servers it is able to identify are:
- BIND (v4, v8, v9)
- eNom DNS
- Incognito DNS commander
- MS Server NT4/2000/2003
- Net::DNS::Namesever
