  1. Well done Steve, the hard work was worth it 8)

    As you know I have thought it was a goog idea from some time ago.

    The question is when are you going to expand on the idea to show how hosts with multiple network cards and IP addressess running multiple servers (ie Apache etc) or OS’s (ie via VMware etc) can be remotely detected using the same idea?
