    Fingerprinting

    Looking for tools that I can use to fingerprint systems. I'm using windows xp so I can't use nmap. Are there any good alternatives out there?

    Can't get any of them to work proporly. Found a program called Retina that told me that the target computer was either a win95, win98 or winNT system.

    Any theories why xprobe and mingsweep doesn't work. Would really like to try those programs out as well.

    Thanx

    well good fingerprinting tools are mostly found in networking tools..

    i suggest you visit www.firewall.cx and see their downloads.. i have roughly lots of their softwares in my box and i am quite impressed.. especially with the packet annalyzer and IP Tools..

    You can read some of our previous threads about fingerprinting and related.

    There are not many tools for Windows but these threads can maybe give you a hint about were to look for more information.

    I have been using ISS and it works quite well but its a expensive program and you would probably find cheaper or even freeware programs which suits your need.

    Btw nmap should work under WinXP if you can find the appropriate packet driver. Try a search on www.google.com for packet drivers for WinXP.

    Are you talking about Active stack Fingerprinting or passive stack finger printing? Then I would go with siphon, a passive port mapping, OS id, and network topology tool.
    Check out www.gravitino.net/projects/siphon Though I would have to say I am not too sure how thats going to work on an xp system. Also check out Cheops though I havent used it myself, It has turned up some good reviews. Hope this solves your delema. see Ya.

    jayhawk,

    I haven't tried this on an XP system, but it was built for WinNT and Win2000, so it should work on XP. Check out this link:

    T1T3SONET,

    as far as I know, Languard doesn't perform OS-fingerprinting...


    There has to be someone here that has successfully fingerprinted an OS using windows xp?
