+p0f v2 is a passive operating system fingerprinting tool.
+It can identify the OS on:
+ - machines that connect to your box (SYN mode),
+ - machines you connect to (SYN+ACK mode),
+ - machines you cannot connect to (RST+ mode),
+ - machines whose communications you can observe.
+
+P0f can also detect or measure the following:
+ - firewall presence, NAT use,
+ - existence of a load balancer setup,
+ - the distance to the remote system and its uptime,
+ - other guy's network hookup (DSL, OC3, avian carriers) and his ISP.
