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

apparently it only listens on IPv6 and i need IPv4.

root@patrick-desktop:/var/log# netstat -a | grep auth

tcp6 0 0 *:auth *:* LISTEN

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.).

oidentd 2.0.7
running oidentd 2.0.7 on slack 9.x with 2.4.20

getting:
[129.250.228.2] 54890 , 6667 : ERROR : NO-USER

even when logged in as root, or any user

oidentd -l 5 -e --other=UNIX

is what i used to start it,

oidentd -l 5 -u nobody -e --other=UNIX -r MYSTRING

is what i normally use to run it, but all the sudden it just stopped responding when i had a power outage, and the box lost power. nothing else on the box seems to have problems, but oidentd. it will respond to all queries with MYSTRING, even for a local ircd request. the box is behind a router, but running as DMZ, even with port 113 forwarded to the box, the samething happens.

Re: oidentd + FreeBSD + ipf
I just installed oidentd with an IPF enabled kernel, and all works well for me. Are you starting oidentd with the flags '-f -m'? -f == forwarding, and falls back to -m for masquerading support in /etc/oidentd_masq.cfg
