Linux Command to find the OS version of remote host.


Hi Experts

I'm in a situation, that I have no access to one of my remote server. And I CAN'T EVEN INSTALL ANY SOFTWARE in any linux boxes to determine the remote OS name and version.

Can you please enlighten me on how could I find out the OS version of remote host without installing any software or without login to that server.

thanks in advance.

If you can't log in, you may be out of luck.

If you can log in (even ssh in), this might help.

Maybe if you gave a little more detail . . . .
