A simple, faked ident daemon

Project description

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 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.
