    Believe it or not, I just picked up a client and their IT guys didn't know what OS or server software their webhost was using. So I wanted both but when I saw it was Apache I pretty much assumed it would be a linux or unix box. Actually it appears to be FreeBSD (they thought it was Windows).

    P,S., I don't think I'll rely on their IT guys anymore than absolutely necessary.

    If those tools don't work, sometimes you can get the info (or make assumptions) based on the ftp MOTD banner when you log in, but you'd only see that using a proper ftp client. Dreamweaver and other tools often suppress system messages.

    You could also telnet to port 25 and see if there's a SMTP server running and look at that banner too.

    Pittbug and Michael, thanks. I just wanted some info so I could know the IT guys were blowing smoke (and to let them know I knew it). I should have complete access in a day or two.
