The tell them to install midentd?

Description: identd replacement with masquerading support.
 An identd  replacement with  masquerading support.  With  your average
 identd on a masquerading firewall, if  an ident request comes in for a
 masqueraded connection, it will  return 'ERROR : NO-USER' or something
 along those  lines. This may be  quite irritating at  times, with, for
 example, IRC servers  that won't let you in if they  don't get a valid
 ident reply.
