comment How to ping a server to discover what OS or other software it is running?
Both things are helpful -- grepping server responses probably makes sense in many cases and these other packages are worth learning about. I am curious if these echos resemble the kinds of malformed responses that attackers use, though, or what acceptable ways there are to do this. I notice, for example, that netcraft shows FreeBSD as the datapipe.com server while the public website datapipe.com server header is IIS.

Do you know how many requests this makes in looking for something like osscan? And is there a way to break them into something like no more than one every few seconds?

comment How to recruit a linux guru
This is the right idea. Maybe start a wiki here with the questions. What does 'touch' do? Difference between 'tail' and 'less'. How would you create ssl certs for different tasks. Especially ones where there are different ways to do it that map to different levels of skill.
