Problems with finger
Posted on 1997-01-13
When a user uses finger to look up a user name from a real name the system returns
finger: ______: no such user
I.e. it is acting like finger -m not finger. So I tried
# unalias finger
thinking a configuration script had aliased it, but it was not aliased. I am using a Slackware 3.1 distribution. I'm not sure what version of finger it is. Right now a work around is being worked on, but we'd like to have finger working properly for our users. I don't imagine that it is an actual bug in the program, more likely a mess up in a configuration somewhere, but where I do not know. The inetd.conf file looks OK. Any Ideas?
