ident daemon for unix systems, implementing rfc1413 defined behaviour.<br>
&nbsp;<br>
There is also a Debian package available, coordinated by Wesley W. Terpstra.<br>
The package for your architechture can be downloaded from any official Debian mirror.

</div><H2 id="h1" class="level2"><a name="h1"></a>2. Why another identd daemon?</H2><div class="level2" id="divh1">

Because there is no other (wasn't in 2000 at least)
which worked correctly over multiple NATs.
<br>
        The program works like an ident daemon is supposed to work.
        It allows people to query who's connecting in which port.
        Masquerading is supported, and works recursively.
        Works only under Linux, due to the use of /proc filesystem.<br>
        &nbsp;<br>
        My typical case (why I made this):<ul>
        <li> Alpha has the internet connection. It has an ip in internet.</li>
        <li> Beta is masqueraded by Alpha.</li>
        <li> Gamma is masqueraded by Beta.</li>
        <li> Somebody in Gamma starts irc, and the irc server (in internet)
             gets the username of the user in Gamma, correctly.</li>
        </ul>
        All computers in the identd masquerading chain must be
        running bidentd, except the end part, which can be using
        any identd daemon, as long as that one does not care about
        the source ip address.<br>

</div><H2 id="h2" class="level2"><a name="h2"></a>3. Notes</H2><div class="level2" id="divh2">

Version 1.0.8 and prior worked only on the 2.2 -series of the Linux kernel,
but 1.0.9 supports 2.4 too.<br>
Since 1.1.0, kernel family 2.6 is supported too.
