I'm running red hat 7 and have been trying to find info to get ident to work when connecting to irc. Whenever I try and connect to an efnet server it just says 'You need to install identd to use this server.' I made sure that port 113 was accepting in the firewall. Problem is all the solutions have you modify the inetd file but in red hat 7 there is no inetd file. Any help would be appreciated.

ident is usually not started out of inetd anymore. You should have a /etc/identd.conf file. To start ident you should be able to do a `/etc/rc.d/init.d/identd start`. That being said, if you would like to try and run ident out of inet then put a line like this in inetd.conf:
auth   stream  tcp     wait    root    /usr/sbin/in.identd in.identd -e -o

As i mentioned in the post above there is no inetd.conf file in Red Hat version 7. It has been changed to a directory called xinetd.d and within that directory there is a file called linuxconf-web. Here is a what that file looks like:

# default: off
# description: The Linuxconf system can also be accessed via a web \
# browser. Enabling this service will allow connections to \
# Linuxconf running in web UI mode.
service linuxconf
socket_type = stream
wait = yes
user = root
server = /sbin/linuxconf
server_args = --http
disable = yes

So you see editing the inetd.conf file will be tough since there isn't one.

identd is running on the box. But no ident on any irc efnet servers. All that comes up is 'nick@'
