    Default Tracking Operating System

    Hi,

    Is it possible to know the os running on a system(connected in LAN) if IP address is known?Let me know how to do it.


    For example on local system we can know by System.getProperty("os.name").Like wise can we know for other system?

    Regards,
    Mansi

    Note that this not a Java question :) I guess one way is to query this to the web server running on that system. (Obviously this requires the host to have a web server running)

    Query www.java-forums.org using the following web interface:

    View HTTP Request and Response Header

    It will report that the web server is Apache running on a unix system. I don't think there is any clear way to obtain this information from any host. You can just guess that info by looking at the services running on ports and their versions possibility.
