nullidentd & ipfw?
Authored by: TicToc on Mar 12, '03 05:34:51PM
Slight variation on the above - I am using an old 7300 w G3/300 as a software router, running Mac OS X 10.1.5, ipfw and natd. I'd like to access irc servers from my LAN, and ran into the ident problem.

Installing nullidentd on the router solved the problem (thanks for the hint!), but with one wrinkle: I had to open up my firewall with a rule: allow all from any to any. Not great!

I did try: allow tcp from any 113 to any 113 and allow udp from any 113 to any 113 ...but that didn't work (the udp rule was based on a single comment somewhere in an archived usenet post on Google...).

Can anyone tell me what ipfw rules I should insert to allow nullidentd to work when running on the router?


PS In case anyone is interested, I had to modify the nullidentd makefile to get it to compile on 10.1.5, by changing the compiler from "gcc" to "cc".
