Running hidentd with inetd

If you want to start hidentd via inetd, add this to your inetd.conf:

auth           stream  tcp     nowait    identd  /usr/local/sbin/hidentd

Then force inetd to reload inetd.conf:

killall -HUP inetd

This example assumes that hidentd is installed in /usr/local/sbin/hidentd, and user identd exists.

Note that under FreeBSD hidentd has to be run as root:

auth           stream  tcp     nowait    root  /usr/local/sbin/hidentd
