Making Identd work

Posted on 2002-07-14

When I use Xchat or KSirc to join Dalnet server, I get killed because my machine is not identified to server. When I check my Gnome or KDE files, or try to install pident software according to Dalnet instructions, I get a response.. "everything is already installed". So, how do I activate the Identd to the server?

May need to check /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny files to make sure the connections to your ident aren't being blocked by your tcp wrappers.

You can try this (as long as lsof is installed) to see if you actually have an identd server running:

lsof | grep LISTEN

And look for a line that says "auth" or "113". That would be an identd server running.

However there are other things that could stop it - it may be installed but not running, or it may be running but firewalled.
