Wow, I see they've removed the "topic" selections... When did this happen?

Anyways, Im after the little line of javascript that you throw into your web-browser window and it'll query the web-server and ask it what version of, say, Apache, and the OS that its running is.

Any ideas?

Cheers

http://www.netcraft.com will do it.

Or from a *nix command prompt:

nmap -O www.domainname.xx.xx

(-O is the OS fingerprinting switch, works for lots of routers etc as well)

But for that to work you'ld need a way of changing the lines they put in the configuration file so it doesn't tell you what OS and server it's running. :D

In the old Internet when people could trust each other, that information was easily available --- in fact you were often told, whether you wanted to know or not. . Now it's regarded as a security problem.

I know you can search sites using site:www.silvertech.co.nz with google, you may be able to find other ways to search the host of the site on google.

I read (at the news stand) a copuple of months ago and article in PCWorld about googling, I thought it may have what you are after, someone around here is bound to have a copy.

Johnboy:
Thanks for the link! Brilliant! It picked up I was running Gentoo Linux at home, correct mod_ssl & php, but it thought I was running apache-2.0.48 when I know I upgraded it to 2.0.50?! What gives?

Ninja:
Thanks for that, but nmap doesnt tell me what application the server is using for the hosting ;-) Thanks though!

Graham:
Yeah, I know its probably a security threat, but this is just one of those 'curiousity killed the cat' sorta things... I just feel like being nosey and finding out what servers are running.

URL: http://www.utm.utoronto.ca
IP: 142.150.1.9
Server: Apache/2.0.47 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.0.47 OpenSSL/0.9.7b PHP/4.3.3RC3
Response: 200, OK 200

Excellent site! Many thanks for what will be hours of fun learning what all my favorite servers are running and comparing performance/uptimes etc!

Very cool!

There was something in Computerworld a month or two back as well.
