fauxident is a small Python script that will act as an extremely
naive ident server, answering all ident requests with a consistent
response -- either an ERROR or a USERID response. This can be
advantageous on systems where running a true identd is
unavailable, where it would be would be a security risk, or when
masquerading firewalls are in use, where multiple machines are
involved behind the firewall and running a proper ident system is
not an option.
Getting the software
The current version of fauxident is 1.0.
