Re: ident daemon: oIdentd creating a lot of processes

i'm using oidentd-2.0.8 installed through /usr/ports/security/oidentd

is this normal for those who are using oidentd as ident daemon? or
should i try other ident daemon?

Is there a reason why you do not use the identd from FreeBSD itself?

It is part of inetd and can be enabled in /etc/inetd.conf. I have changed the default options from:

#auth stream [...] auth -r -f -n -o UNKNOWN -t 30


auth stream [...] auth -r -t 30

Documentation about the options is in the manpage of inetd (search for "auth").

Hope this helps.
