I just recently got a dual boot system with XP and Slack on seperate drives using LILO up and running and connecting to the internet. But I quickly discovered that identd is crippled out of service with the iso I burned to install from.(Maybe the whole distro? I remember some security concerns regarding it) I have tried compiling pidentd and overwriting the previous binary, forcing inetd to start it (which worked once), and even a command line start to the &ground, all to no avail. Even when I could see the daemon running with a ps aux|grep identd I was knocked off all identd required IRC servers.(port 113 was uncommented from my identd.conf file and port forwarding setup at the router and verified working via XP)
I tried googling for the answer but did not find anything close to my situation. (Just like I remember from the old 2.0.2x kernel days...)
Help would be greatly appreciated as I look forward to getting back into my LinuxMojo and contributing to the community.
1.) How can I get a mostly secure identd running enough to IRC for #linux?
2.) When running, where I can look such as error logs etc to find out why identd requests were being ignored? e.g. tail -f /var/log/messages
Many thanx in advance!!
