Description pogosyan 2000-06-19 10:24:20 EDT
I'm launching in.indentd from inet with 'wait' option

auth	stream	tcp	wait	root	/usr/sbin/in.identd in.identd -e -o
with the following line in /etc/identd.conf

protocol:timeout = 120

I expected in.identd threads to exist after 120 sec after being launched,
(for example by /usr/sbin/ibench ) however they stay forever. I have also

auth	stream	tcp	wait	root	/usr/sbin/in.identd in.identd -w -t120 -e -o

with same no effect on timeout.

identd now runs as its own process, which woiuld work around this problem.
