Yeah but can you remove
Authored by: prefect on Mar 12, '03 05:52:17AM

Not running identd is very common for trojans/drones running on hacked machines, and because of that some irc-servers and channels bans clients without working identd.

In MacOS before OSX there was no restriction on who could grab what port, OSX tho is totally different. All ports under 1024 is reserved to root, and since identd is port 113 a program ran as a normal user can't provide identd.
