Re: inetd question
You're right of course. I should have been more precise. There are two
other services involved:
squid as a standalone server and http-gw on the firewall and both call
ident for each www request.
That makes up for quite some traffic given that one www site is build by
a lot of www requests.
Thanks anyway, Peter.
