What is the identd deamon all about ?
How does it work and do I really need to run it ?
I have real the man pages and it says it uses some User ID protocol. But if I
run do not run it everything seems to work ok, at least so far...
The reason why I ask is I believe it may be possible that someone is trying to
hack my box RH 6.1 as my modem has been going crazy and a bunch of these
in.identd deamons are running for some unknown reason. either a hack attempt or
something else funny is going on.
