operating systems can be detedted using ping command

Operating Systems can be detected using Ping Command in cmd, Ping is a computer network administration software utility, which used to find the Availability of a host on an Internet Protocol (IP) network.

Ping operates by sending Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) Echo Request packets to the target host and waiting for an ICMP Echo Reply.

TTL means, how long a resolver is supposed to cache the DNS query before the query expires and a new one needs to be done.

TTL values differ between the Operating system. Here you find TTL value for Range of servers. Reference subinsb.

Operating Systems can detected using Ping Command CMD

We should run the traceroute command first to determine the hops between the Target and the destination.

tracert greenhattech.com

 

Total # of hops = 9

Now Ping the Domain ping greenhattech.com

TTL value is TTL=60, By making the Sum of TTL value and number of hops we can define the operating system (60 + 9 = 69), we can conclude that there is a window Machine Running.

This how Operating Systems can be detected using Ping Command in cmd.
