IN.IDENTTESTD(8)                                 IN.IDENTTESTD(8)

     NAME
          in.identtestd - a small daemon that can be used to test
          Ident servers

     SYNOPSIS
          in.identtestd

     DESCRIPTION
          in.identtestd is a small daemon (to be started from inetd)
          that does an ident lookup on you if you telnet into it. Can
          be used to verify that your Ident server is working cor-
          rectly.

          The source code can be found in the debian libident source
          package, as ident-tester.c.

     EXAMPLE
          A typical entry in /etc/inetd.conf would be:

          9999 stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/in.identtestd in.identtestd

          With the above entry in place and active, execute "telnet
          hostname 9999" from either this system, or another system.
          It should show something like:

              Trying hostname...
              Connected to hostname.
              Escape character is '^]'.
