How do I get IDENT to report about me?
Here at DHP we believe that by default, IDENT responses should not given
out to remote servers. However, there are resources that require ident
information to be given out (IRC is one of them). If you would like ident
information to be given out, then type the following command at a shell
chmod 644 ~/.identme
chmod 711 ~
To remove ident reporting, just type:
This file is checked dynamically when servers request ident information,
so you can create and delete the file whenever you want. If you have any
problems, feel free to send email to "firstname.lastname@example.org".
