|How to determine information about a Web server?|
IP, operating system, etc.

Can anyone tell me how I can determine the IP address, operating system, Web server and release version for a Web site hosted on a particular Web server?

Download VisualRoute and it can tell you most things about a web server, unless the admin of the server has limited the servers response or ICMP packets are blocked by the hosting co. routers

netcraft.com is probably the most common site that does this kind of thing for you.

If you have a copy of Lynx (a text browser) you can get some good basic info like this:
Lynx -head http://www.example.com
