Description cadams 1999-06-11 20:08:17 UTC
wu-ftpd now _always_ does a RFC931 ident lookup on the
incoming connection - there is no option to disable it.  For
users behind firewalls that drop the ident connection
attempt, this means they take 10 seconds just to connect
(before even giving a username).  This needs to default to
off and be a configurable option.

dkl - can you check the wu-ftpd-2.5.0-3.src.rpm in my SRPMS directory
on devserv.devel.redhat.com. That has a new "-I0" option to turn off
ident checking, as well as man page update

Fixed (by building for 6.1) in wu-ftpd-2.5.0-3.
