Hey Guys,

Currently, I am building a tool that is based on nmap. I would like to
be able to grab banners when performing an nmap scan. I looked briefly
at the code and I believe that the banners are being captured and not
displayed. Currently, I am using another tool to capture the banners
and I would like to depreciate this dependency.  My skills in C/C++
are very rusty and I would really like to see this as a feature in

You are looking for the Service Version flag "-sV".  Nmap will try a number
of different payloads depending on the port and attempt to match against a
list of regular expressions.

If you are also operating system fingerprinting with "-O" you may want to
use "-A" instead which turns on both "-O" and "-sV".

Hope that helps.
