    ScannerX will run a free test for you, and, for a fee they will run monthly tests: http://www.scannerx.com/

    You can also perform your own tests from a remote server using nmap: http://www.nmap.org/

    Word of warning, before performing any tests like this let your hosting provider, or data center NOC know. If they are running IDS tools on the network they may catch the scan attempts and block the IP addresses.

    A good test would be to post on some script kiddies' vbulletin board, "all you script kiddies suck!".

    IRC works too. Just go to #scriptkiddes and say the same thing.

    Completely free security audit!

    So to answer your question, an IRC client or web browser is all you need.

    Perhaps Brad should bill himself as the "unhackable host" and issue a press release that offers $500 to anyone who can hack his server? That would have the same effect as your plan, but reach a wider audience .

    www.nessus.org

    Nessus is great, I highly recommend it.

    You could also go to websites such as www.hack.co.za and run some exploits against yourself
