Active OS fingerprinting tool The XProbe2

xprobe2 is an active operating system fingerprinting tool with a different approach to operating system fingerprinting. xprobe2 relies on fuzzy signature matching, probabilistic guesses, multiple matches simultaneously, and a signature database.

The operation of xprobe2 is described in a paper titled "xprobe2 - A 'Fuzzy' Approach to Remote Active Operating System Fingerprinting", which is available from http://www.sys-security.com/html/projects/X.html

As xprobe2 uses raw sockets to send probes, you must have root privileges in order for xprobe2 to be able to use them.
