fingerd - The user information server for networks
The fingerd program allows users to get information about remote systems or
users when they execute; for example,
-s Turns on socket level debugging.
The fingerd program is a protocol that provides an interface to the
finger(1) command. By default, the fingerd program is disabled. To enable
it, edit the /etc/inetd.conf file, uncomment the line containing the finger
service name, and restart Internet services by issuing the /usr/sbin/rcinet
After it is enabled, the fingerd program is invoked by inetd(8), which
listens for finger requests at port 79. When it receives control, fingerd
reads a single command line, terminated by a newline, and passes it to the
finger command, which generates a report. The fingerd program closes its
port connection when output from finger is finished.
