DirectoryScanner is the FREE Directory Server fingerprinting tool. It can help you to remotely detect the type of Directory servers (such as Microsoft Active Directory, Novell eDirectory etc) running on the local network as well as Internet. It is GUI version of RemoteDirDetector– a perl based console tool to detect type of directory servers.

Also it can be used in penetration testing while evaluating client environments where multiple Directory servers are deployed. Directory servers are typically used to store crucial data in an organization including employee authentication information.
