ANN: fauxident 1.2.1 -- A simple, faked ident daemon

Discussion in 'Python' started by Erik Max Francis, Oct 22, 2003.

  1. Overview

    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.


    Getting the software

    The current version of fauxident is 1.2.1.

    The latest version of the software is available in a tarball here:
    http://www.alcyone.com/software/fauxident/fauxident-latest.tar.gz.

    The official URL for this Web site is
    http://www.alcyone.com/software/fauxident/.


    Requirements

    fauxident requires Python 2.x or greater and a Unix or Unix-like
    operating system.


    License

    This code is released under the GPL.

    Release history [since 1.2]
