Hello Ivan,
what ever results u got were as per the nmap's expected behaviour.. why not
try tools like superscan or nessus .. who use banner grabbing techniques to
recognise applications.

Subject: help interpreting the nmap output


I'm running nmap on Windows XP. Normally, it works fine (when I use it to
scan a computer for which I know what services it's running) and returns
detailed info on the services installed.
However, I tried to run it on a web server on the Internet and I have
trouble getting all the info.
Using -A -T4 options on a server and I receive the following reply

Too many fingerprints match this host to give specific OS details

So, why the question marks next to the open protocols? Next I tried
connecting to the telnet and ftp, but I get disconnected straight away. So I
tried to get more info on the http and https by calling nmap with -sV -p 80
or -sV -p 443 options. Since it's a web server it is certainly running those
services. I get something like

80/tcp    open   Apache httpd

Anyway, no sign of the Apache version. So, how can I find out what version
of the Apache a server is running? What is the best way to proceed from
here? TIA
