Currently I block port 113 (ident) on the firewall. I block everything and
pick and choose what to let in. Never got around to letting this in :)
Anyway, I have about 6-7 in.identd processes running all the time from
failed ident attempts. Nothing big really. System is working great. Logs get
filled a little much with DENY messages.
So does evryone generally let these thru? Any exploits? is there a way to
get rid of those in.identd processes if I leave it blocked?
