In addition to Giorgos' answer, there are tools, such as nmap, that identify the OS by it's behaviour and not by any string that appears anywhere. In order to convince those tools that your OS is not FreeBSD, you'll have to alter the IP code to cause it to behave in a manner that is unique. Good luck doing _that_ without breaking things. -- Bill Moran http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
