Description Ed McKenzie 2001-02-21 21:42:54 UTC
see subject. nmap doesn't properly identify kernels beyond 2.2.16.

Comment 1 Tim Powers 2001-02-21 22:24:31 UTC
This is actually a feature. not a bug. It prevents people from guessing what
kind of machine it is. Consider it a security enhancement.

Comment 2 Tim Powers 2001-02-21 22:30:22 UTC
I failed to mention that this is a kernel feature, not a crippled nmap.
