an identd for irc
I was trying to setup an ident daemon for irc. Can anyone tell me your
What I did was:
- istalled slidentd, a minimal ident (RfC 1413) daemon
I choose it because It's a very small and simple daemon that would not give out
any sensitive information.
- do the necessary configuration (add 1 line to /etc/inetd.conf).
But it doesn't work:
*** Checking Ident
*** No Ident response
- I then did a manual check:
telnet localhost 113
and I can see that the slidentd is successfully launched by inetd:
nobody 23088 1420 0 14:18 ? 00:00:00 slidentd
but the respond I get is not good:
6193, 23 : USERID : UNIX : stjohns
0, 0: ERROR: UNKNOWN-ERROR
Instead of "ERROR : NO-USER" I get a weird UNKNOWN-ERROR.
Please help, if you have successfully get an identd working. I don't mind
what it is, working with irc is surely enough.
PS. I've also searched on google, but the only things I found are
frustrated attempts, e.g.
Identd not working
oidentd / irc
I can't find any working example. Please help.
thanks a lot
