TTL value?
Hi every1,

recently i was using hping, and came across 'ttl values'. First I read about ttl, and i was wondering that i read somewhere 'the ttl value of an IP indicates the corresponding operating system'.
Is it true?
If yes HOW?

any help is appreciated.

Re: TTL value?
Yes, OS is identifiable by their TTLs but not definitive 'cause it can be changed, see this chart http://members.cox.net/~ndav1/self_p...TL_values.html
