ANN: fauxident 1.2.1 -- A simple, faked ident daemon

Overview

fauxident is a small Python script that will act as an extremely
naive ident server, answering all ident requests with a consistent
response -- either an ERROR or a USERID response. This can be
advantageous on systems where running a true identd is
unavailable, where it would be a security risk, or when
masquerading firewalls are in use, where multiple machines are
involved behind the firewall and running a proper ident system is
not an option.


Getting the software

The current version of fauxident is 1.2.1.

The latest version of the software is available in a tarball here:
http://www.alcyone.com/software/faux...-latest.tar.gz.

The official URL for this Web site is
http://www.alcyone.com/software/fauxident/.


Requirements

fauxident requires Python 2.x or greater and a Unix or Unix-like
operating system.


License

This code is released under the GPL.

Release history [since 1.2]

- 1.2.1; 2003 Oct 21. User name permuting was accidentally on by
default; corrected missing -m entry in usage information.
