Exactly that will be the main use...IRC servers....i will redirect the
port to one box where i will keep that liedent server...

The problem is that i have few boxes behind a NAT so IRC servers
asking for identd are blocke in the FW....and i cant redirect/forward
port 113 to all boxes...i can only to i need an identd that
would fake the response cause the process being asked by the identd
will not be in that box...So if its a common identd it will respond
with ERROR-USER UNKNOWN or sthg similar...

Thanks for sharing,
