Speaking of monitoring thing like
Server: Apache/1.3b4-dev

Are there any "artifacts of implementation" for the TCP implementations from
the major vendors which can be used to heuristically determine which
operating system is being run on a web server machine?

For example,
$ http-get :header=only 
HTTP/1.0 200 OK
Server: Lotus-Domino/4.5
Date: Friday, 23-Jan-98 11:29:42 GMT
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Length: 931

Simple enough, but I'm curious as to if this is running on an NT or Solaris
or some other box. 

Of course if the thing is behind a firewall then any TCP artifacts
would pertain to the firewall.
