Hello All:

Is there a PRACTICAL solution from PRODUCTION
environments that can be used to block OS detection
from tools like NMAP? I googled and read some notes
but couldn't find a real world solution to blocking
Windows & Linux OS detection.

Such solutions and their limits are documented on the NMAP web page
http://insecure.org/nmap/misc/defeat-nmap-osdetect.html
(6th Google hit for "netfilter OS detection") and usually employ a Linux-Netfilter or *BSD-PF firewall.

Bye

Volker
