if you are trying to use IRC,

when you connect and it says no ident response, this is either your routers firewall, or your machines firewall.

when you connect to IRC just let it sit there for a minute you can still log into IRC without
ident running aslo it could be that the IRC client you are using has ident disabled.

if you are running redhat try 'redhat-config-network' .
and unset your firewall.

"filtering" means that only specific request from certain machines can get through.
in your case it may be filtered to only accept 127.0.0.1.

k i tried 'redhat-config-network' and it come up with a sreen to configure ethernet isdn or modem i chose ethernet and there is really nothing in there about filtering only dhcp subnet mask settings.
i did chkconfig identd on and set rules in iptables to accept incoming 113 request tcp and udp i have no clue why it's still filtered
