How can I find out what operating system is running on a remote web server?


I am running desktop Linux on my home computer. I would like to know of a program that I could use to find out the operating system of a remote web server. Is this possible? I know that web servers have access to information about the operating systems of client machines that view their website, but do something similar happen in reverse? How can I find out what operating system is running on a remote web server? I would really appreciate your useful information regarding this. Thanks.
