Re: How to identify a Unix machine....
Not a foolproof method. Telnet might be blocked and even if it is open, there
may be a variety of issue messages which may or may not describe the OS
correctly. I think the best way to do it is use what nmap uses, though even that
is not too certain.

As in telnet you can use socket programming in Win32.
connect to the remote machine and then read out the
message. it will pop out the version of Unix(variant).
There might be many other ways also.
