Uhh, I'm assuming you meant remote version detection? What version of nmap are you using? Versions greater than 3.50 have built-in application version detection and is rather effective (nmap -A host). You can also just do a simple banner grab with telnet:

telnet ip.of.host 80
*If that works you should get something like this:
Trying 192.168.0.3....
Connected to 192.168.0.3.
Escape character is '^]'.
*You'll be at a blank line, now type this and hit enter twice:
GET / HTTP/1.0

You should get the banner plus raw html. In the banner, look at the Server info
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

You can also use www.netcraft.com to find out the webserver.
