Re: [PEN-TEST] Modem detection without dialing

nbtstat -a(A) against an NT machine with results of <06 Unique> will
identify a RAS service (that may be attached to a modem)

null connection and 'getmac \\host' with results of NDIS_WAN indicates a
potential modem

PCEverywhere ports 5631-2 will indicate a PCAnywhere box, but this doesn't
necessarily mean there is also a modem.

I am wondered if there is a product which can detect the existence of a modem,

can an
administrator/pen tester identify a modem through the network, rather than
through the telephone

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
