What would be the difference from the existing probes? I know on the http probes I discussed other requests methods and the reason GET was used first is that more servers respond to it than any other web server "verb".

As far as i know the version.bind txt chaos record is not asked by nmap
. Some people change this record or deactivate it, but this like symantec:

cemil () fusie:~/nmap-3.50$ host -c chaos -t txt version.bind ns1.symantec.com.
VERSION.BIND text "Symantec's DNS version of course!  Doh!"

but this is the exception... and if someone has changed this record
there are some funny things to see :)

Mit freundlichen Gruessen / kind regards,
