I want to display WFS data from the following OGC compliant service:

I haven't been successful yet, so now I'm wondering which WFS server software is being used by

How can I find out what's running on their servers?

Having poked around further it looks like a home brew system for example the class throwing the (spurious) error when you use service = wfs instead of WFS is si.bron.GISRepSystem.WFSExportServlet.WFSRequest.WFSRequestImpl isGetCapabilitiesGET

Combining the inability to handle case in the request with the completely wrong SRS listed in the capabilities file it looks like a badly implemented home brew WFS which would explain why you can't connect to it.

I'd suggest contacting the owner but they skipped that part of the capabilities response.

Thanks but I want to know the WFS server software. – underdark Oct 24 '10 at 13:12

Looks like a ArcServer based on it's inability to answer a simple request with out an error :-)

But it really shouldn't matter as WFS is a standard designed to hide implementation details.

+1 for 'it shouldn't matter'. Unfortunately theory != practice. – underdark Oct 24 '10 at 14:42
No it really doesn't matter - if it does your server and or client is broken. – iant Oct 25 '10 at 1:18

According to the HTTP response, they are running Oracle Application Server:

Server: Oracle-Application-Server-10g/ Oracle-HTTP-Server OracleAS-Web-Cache-10g/ (N;ecid=3264503745971,0)

My guess would be Oracle Spatial or GeoServer.

I thought GeoServer at first, too. But, all of the other telltale URLs are not responding (could also be locked down). GeoServer would also have a Java Application Server (JBOSS, Tomcat, etc) in the response headers. – Jim B Oct 25 '10 at 10:36
