Oidentd properly configured ... still not working.


I've got a home server linked to a router that is directly connected to a cable modem. On the server I'm trying to configure Oidentd generally for the IRC purposes. Port 113 is frowarded on a router to the server.

Oidentd has been configured with options:

The file /usr/local/etc/oidentd.conf contains:

default {
     default {
          deny spoof
          deny spoof_all
          deny spoof_privport
          allow random_numeric
          allow numeric
          allow hide
I run it like that:

/usr/local/sbin/oidentd --user=nobody --group=nobody
So I would say everything is OK ... but still after I connect to an IRC server I get:

23:23 -!- my_nick [~my_nick@some.ip.addr]

What is the problem?
