"Passive OS fingerprinting tool" http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/ports.cgi?query=p0f&stype=all Here is a snip from the ports description: "Passive OS fingerprinting is based on information coming from a remote host when it establishes a connection to our system. Captured packets contain enough information to identify the operating system. In contrast to active scanners such as nmap and QueSO, p0f does not send anything to the host being identified."
