Script Summary

Connects to a dictionary server using the DICT protocol, runs the SHOW SERVER command, and displays the result. The DICT protocol is defined in RFC 2229 and is a protocol which allows a client to query a dictionary server for definitions from a set of natural language dictionary databases.

The SHOW server command must be implemented and depending on access will show server information and accessible databases. If authentication is required, the list of databases will not be shown.

Example Usage

nmap -p 2628 <ip> --script dict-info
