Social engineering is probably the best way to figure out what they're
using .. call up the IT department and pretend to be selling another
product. Chances are someone will spout off "oh .. we're already using
'X' as an IDS".
As for bypass .. stuff along the lines of fragrouter is generally worth
a shot (ie: attacks against their stream reassembly). If this webserver
supports SSL, then setup a tunnel first and do your exploit that way ..
IDS/IPS can't see into SSL sessions (unless they use a hardware
offloader and put the IDS behind it).
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
