Re: dns daemon version

But it only works for bind, doesn't it?

on this particular case (192.168.10.1) I know which version is running, and I changed the conf file to 'version "nice try";', so, when I try to "dig it" i get:

root () arara:~# dig @192.168.10.1 chaos txt version.bind

; <<>> DiG 9.2.2-P3 <<>> @192.168.10.1 chaos txt version.bind

root () arara:~#

is there any other way to query which daemon is running (and version, as well)?

cheers,

Fernando

hey guys, is there anyway to probe the dns server version?

I tried this with nmap:

root () arara:~# nmap -sS -sV -v -p53 192.168.10.1

Starting nmap 3.45 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2003-12-16 11:16 EST
Host gw.local (192.168.10.1) appears to be up ... good.
Initiating SYN Stealth Scan against gw.local (192.168.10.1) at 11:16
Adding open port 53/tcp
The SYN Stealth Scan took 0 seconds to scan 1 ports.
Initiating service scan against 1 service on 1 host at 11:16
The service scan took 10 seconds to scan 1 service on 1 host.
Interesting ports on gw.local (192.168.10.1):
PORT   STATE SERVICE VERSION
53/tcp open  domain

Nmap run completed -- 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 10.398 seconds
