masqidentd

masqidentd is an Ident daemon for Linux systems that use IP masquerading. It implements the recommendations in RFC1413. It also has the ability to forward Ident requests from a client to a machine sitting behind the masquerade service. Users also have the ability to override the default Ident response. This program is most useful for people who use IRC using mIRC or Pirch behind IP masquerade. masqidentd is intended for use with ipchains only.

  •  24 Jul 2000 03:46

    Release Notes: A misspelled variable name was corrected. This error was causing an incomplete response to be generated if the query port was on the masquerade server.

    •  13 Jun 2000 04:17

      Release Notes: Use of SIGALRM removed; now uses select for timeout. Use of buffered IO with select removed; now uses sysread/syswrite. Timeout limit changed from 30 seconds to 3. Code added to change 'root' username to 'ident' before responding to request; this is useful when using IRC via ssh port forwarding.

            as i understand it (i'm not an official coder or anything), masqidentd will only run from inetd or similar 'super'servers -- read the INSTALL file

            That URL has an patch and a patched version to work with iptables in the 2.4 kernel series. Though I don't run it myself, I have helped someone set it up.
