Re: How to verfiy ident daemon is running or not

Dear,

Thanks for your response.

I already know that ident is not configured on /etc/inetd.conf file and /etc/services ident autentication configured with tcp port & this process is not running.

But our security tool detected ident daemon is running on our HP UX node.

my question - is there any other file avaialble for configuration?

HP-UX support two ways. /etc/inetd.conf and /sbin/init.d/sendmail.

Check for /usr/lbin/identd in /usr/lbin/identd.

If the entry is there, identd will be started if sendmail is running.


Thanks

check for /usr/lbin/identd in /sbin/init.d/sendmail.
