Prescanic's goal is to attempt to obtain as much information about a sinlge host as possible. From tcp fingerprintging, banner grabbing, anonymous ftp detection, telnet banner parsing, it's got a few tricks.


# prescanic < [-h host][-f host_file][-i] > [options]
 -h < host >    Scan a single host.
 -f < host_file >    Accept hosts from "host_file"
 -i         Accept host's from STDIN.


 -s         Stealth mode (syn scan, os detection, nothing else).
 -t < timeout >    # of seconds to wait after receiving no data from the host.
 -d < device >    Network device used to sniff and send on.
 -p < processes >    Number of processes to fork at one time. (0 means don't fork)
 -v         Verbose (lots of debug information)
 -w         Write scan to STDOUT (as well as save it).
 -l         Don't reverse lookup IP addresses.

Developer comments

This project is very old, and I'm talking almost 10 years. I've decided to clean it up and release, see if I can't get some people to help with it. It's got tons of room for expansion and the code is fairly clean. I look forward to hearing from you!
