Description David M. 2021-05-08 18:41:32 UTC
From the README:

"oidentd is an ident (rfc1413 compliant) daemon that runs on Linux,
FreeBSD, OpenBSD and Solaris.  oidentd can handle IP masqueraded/NAT connections
on Linux, FreeBSD (ipf only) and OpenBSD.  oidentd has a flexible mechanism for
specifying ident responses.  Users can be granted permission to specify their
own ident responses.  Responses can be specified according to host and port

FreeBSD's inetd has a built-in ident service which can also generate
bogus responses.

Please see the TODO file for more information on why only ipf is
supported under FreeBSD.

Hi David,

What exactly are you trying to say with this PR?
It's already in ports, https://www.freshports.org/security/oidentd/ and there's a PR open for bumping to the latest version https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=256230
