Widentd package

From pfSense Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search


widentd is a small ident (RFC 1413) deamon which provides a fixed (and fake) reply regardless of the IP address/port pair queried.

Its intended use is on firewalls and NAT machines - where one may want to simply syphon off auth-requests from for example IRC servers.


After installing packages, navigate to Services > widentd. Choose the Listening interface (usually WAN), and enter a Username and System name (Almost always should be UNIX).


Stable - works, though not believed to be widely used.
