10.3: Enable identd server for internet relay chat use
Authored by: kerbaugh on Nov 18, '03 05:35:50AM

I don't know about "must" but fakeident does indeed run perfectly from xinetd and if you want to pass an argument fakeident, so as to specify the username returned, you have but to add the line,

server_args = Bogus

to the suggested /etc/xinetd.d/auth file. In this case however, group information is not returned. I'm sure there's a way to do that but I haven't time to figure that out.
