You mean others from outside trying finger @yourhost.yourdomain
doesn't work?  Or you trying to use finger internally to see
whos logged in?  Does finger @localhost work?  If it's an problem
with those trying it from the outside, what error message do they
get?  Are they trying it by IP or hostname?  Be a little more
specific please :)

Well I guess the problem is with your wtmp/utmp files. Either they don't exist or don't have apropriate permissions (0644) Check this out. Do w, who, last etc work on your system ? Do
finger @yourhost (@localhost) form your or remote machines to your machines work ?
