oidentd

oidentd is an RFC 1413 compliant ident daemon which runs on Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Darwin, OpenBSD, and Solaris. It can handle IP masqueraded/NAT connections on Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD, and it has a flexible mechanism for specifying ident responses. Users can be granted permission to specify their own ident responses. Responses can be specified according to host and port pairs.

            IPv6 only??
            i'm using it on kubuntu gutsy gibbon alpha3

            apparently it only listens on IPv6 and i need IPv4.

            Re: psybnc+oidentd issue resolved - plz ignore last post
            Well my oidentd apparently can't use the spoof function on a FreeBSD 5.4 box.. The config files are the following

            oidentd.conf

            default {

            default {

            deny spoof

            deny spoof_all

            deny spoof_privport

            allow random_numeric

            deny hide

            }

            }

            user phyre {

            default {

            allow spoof

            allow spoof_all

            allow spoof_privport

            }

            }


            And my .oidentd.conf in the phyre home directory :

            global { reply "phyre" "forsaken" "jupiter" "schatje"}


            So on IRC for example, the IRC client reports
            phyre@phyre.cc like it should, instead of ~phyre@phyre.cc

            But when I use an eggdrop bot on IRC, and try to spoof the username to 'jupiter', the .oidentd.conf
            file seems to be neglected by the daemon...

            Any ideas anyone because I've ran out of them...

            Cheers!

            psybnc+oidentd issue resolved - plz ignore last post
            I figured out my STUPID problem. When you run oidentd as -u nobody and -g nobody, it doesn't have access to the /home/*/.oidentd.conf files until you give chmod o+rx /home/* and chmod o+r /home/*/.oidentd.conf files... This non-issue is resolved. I hope everyone else is 1) not as stupid as I am, or 2) able to use this info to learn from my mistake.

            oidentd and psybnc
            I don't understand what needs to happen for psybnc to use oidentd correctly.

            oidentd (on my psybnc server) does not pick up my irc client's ident response, or use the psybnc username/nickname/login for it's ident response.

            Additionally, oidentd returns the username that started the psybnc process to irc servers (psybnc-process-starter) and completely ignores /home/(psybnc-process-starter)/.oidentd.conf.

            This is on a RHL 7.3 system.

            My /etc/oidentd.conf command is as follows:

            default {

            default {

            allow spoof

            deny spoof_all

            deny spoof_privport

            allow random

            allow random_numeric

            allow numeric

            deny hide

            }

            }

            And the command I use to start oidentd is as follows:

            oidentd -d -m -f -u nobody -g nobody -C /etc/oidentd.conf

            What is wrong here? psybnc has been compiled with oidentd support flagged, so that is not the problem.

            The psybnc process on the redhat system has multiple users that connect on virtual ips (it is a virtually multi-homed system) (/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:1, eth0:2, etc.).
