fpdns - DNS server fingeprinting tool


fpdns [ -d ] [ -f ] [ -F nchild ]
[ -p port ] [ -Q srcaddr ] [ -r retry ]
[ -s ] [ -S separator ] [ -t timeout ] [ -v ] [server(s)]


fpdns is a program that remotely determines DNS server versions. It does this by sending
a series of borderline DNS queries which are compared against a table of responses and
server versions.

False positives or incorrect versions may be reported when trying to identify a set of
servers residing behind a load-balancing apparatus where the servers are of different
implementations, when a specific implementation behaves like a forwarder, behind a
firewall without statefull inspection or without Application Intelligence.


-d Enable debugging. Off by default.

-D Check all authoritative servers of the specified domain name.

-f Force checking of CH TXT version. Off by default.

-F nchild
Maximum number of forked child processes. Defaults to 10.

-p port
Port to query remote nameserver on. Default is 53.

-Q srcaddr
Set the source IP address to use.

-r retry
Number of attempt to retry fingerprints. Defaults to 1.

-s Short display form. Useful for surveys.

-S Separator. Defaults to " ".

-t timeout
Set the query timeout in seconds. Defaults to 5.

-T Use TCP instead of UDP.

-v Show version of fpdns.

IP address or name to query. Alternatively may be '-' to read from a list of these
from stdin
