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.
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!
