identd not working: rh 7.1

To whom it may concern,

I am relatively new to linux, and have just installed rh 7.1. I did not put in a firewall, and read the other post on identd. For some reason, when I attempt to log onto efnet, it tells me:

--- Closing Link: pulse_[] (Banned: PERM install Identd to connect.)

I ran netstat and got the following result:

tcp 0* LISTEN 1306/in.ident

I assume that this means that the ident deamon is running, what can I do to fix this? Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

First off, are you doing any sort of IP masquerading? This means do you have a windows box behind a linux box trying to connect?

If not then your obviously NOT running identd. In your post I see that in.identd is running on 1306, I'd assume this is a typo, the identd daemon SHOULD be running on port 113.

Look at /etc/services to verify that you have a line like:

auth 113/tcp

or something similar. If this is so, move on to /etc/inetd.conf to make sure you have:

auth stream tcp wait nobody /path/to/in.identd in.identd -P /dev/null

or something similar. If you don't, then your NOT running identd and the queries from IRC are leaving unanswered(and therefore your getting the pesky ~ in your username that's preventing you from connecting).

Look on for a program called oidentd and try and run/install that
