Why not use the ident server built into inetd(8)? No extra ports
From the default inetd.conf:
# Provide internally a real "ident" service which provides ~/.fakeid support,
# provides ~/.noident support, reports UNKNOWN as the operating system type
# and times out after 30 seconds.
auth stream tcp nowait root internal auth -r -f -n -o UNKNOWN -t 30
auth stream tcp6 nowait root internal auth -r -f -n -o UNKNOWN -t 30
