IN.IDENTTESTD(8)               Library functions              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 correctly.

       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 some-
       thing like:

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