hidentd

Running hidentd with xinetd

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

service auth
{
        socket_type     = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        wait            = no
        user            = identd
        server          = /usr/local/sbin/hidentd
}

Then force xinetd to reload xinetd.conf:

killall -HUP xinetd

This example assumes that hidentd is installed in /usr/local/sbin/hidentd, and user identd exists. You can add options with:

server_args=...

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

service auth
{
        socket_type     = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        wait            = no
        user            = root
        server          = /usr/local/sbin/hidentd
}
