I'm running redhat and saw some guides on how to get ident to work properly so I can get rid of the ~ for IRC, such as BNC, but I can't.

First of all, I do have identd installed:
QUOTE
rpm -q pidentd
pidentd-3.0.14-5


But when the guides ask me to edit /etc/inetd.conf, this file doesn't exist. I do have /etc/xinetd.conf though but it doesn't have any "auth" lines that it wasn't me to uncomment and the file is about 5 lines only. So, since I don't have that file I can't go any further, what do I do at this point? Any info or links to guides for my particular scenerio would be appreciated, thanks.

What linux distro is this for (RH 6.0,7.3, 8, 9, etc.) ... your distro uses xinetd.d instead of inetd ... there are versions of pidentd for xinetd.d.

I'm not sure what to do because I'm running xinetd instead of inetd and all the tutorials I've found on google is for inetd only. Any ideas?

pidentd is an identification server, it can be started either by xinetd.d, inetd, or started with the machine starts. The rpm's for RedHat are designed to be started when the machine starts (so the inetd.conf instructions you read can be ignored).

Once pidentd is installed, it places an executable file called identd in /etc/init.d/

You should be able to start identd by typing:

/etc/init.d/identd start

and stop it with

/etc/init.d/identd stop

----------------------------------------

You should be able to make identd startup at every boot time with this command:

chkconfig --level 2345 identd on

and make it show it shuts down every shutdown or reboot with this command:

chkconfig --level 016 identd off

Ok, I got it started, and restarted xinetd also. Everything is running fine.

QUOTE
ps aux | grep ident


that returns 4 or 5 matches yet i still get the ~ when I use mIRC to connect to my BNC. I ran BitchX also from the box itself and the ~ is still there. How Can I get it to identify? I tried installing ident2 also but same thing.
