Xprobe2 allows you to determine what operating system is running on a
remote host. It sends several packets to a host and analyses the
returned answers.
Xprobe2's functionality is comparable to the OS fingerprinting feature
in nmap (written by a different Fyodor):
- Outputs its level of confidence about the OS on the remote host.
- Remains usable even if intermediate systems (routers, firewalls) make
slight modifications to the packets.
- Can list the type of intermediate device (e.g. "Linux IP masquerading").
- Modular architecture allows new fingerprinting tests and new OS
signatures to be added.
