Hello.

I just installed Fedora core 5 and it is provided with authd, the ident-protocol deamon.
I installed irssi for my users to use but it is kind of important to have ident running.

I opened port 113 via firewall and did the same in the iptables to let this port through.

I start irssi normallly but I still have the ~username@**** . So the "~" is still in front.

I cant find any conf-files but the rpm is installed.
How can I make it work?
Thank you in advance!"
Best regards/Artur
