Ident2 is an alternative approach to auth/ident services. It was written from the ground up and can run either as a child handler of inetd or as a standalone daemon with no user intervention. Users can set their own replies or toggle random replies, all at the system administrator's preference, of course. Full compliance with RFC1413 is attempted.
