Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set values in oidentd.users file.
2. run oidentd with flags -f -m.

If you manually add some rules in iptables to DNAT/FORWARD identd port (113) to some particular clients they work perfectly.
Comment 1 Matthias Saou 2005-11-22 06:35:56 EST
Was this working with older Fedora Core releases and the same oidentd version?
Do you have any idea what might have caused this?
Comment 2 Vilius Šumskas 2005-11-22 12:48:15 EST
I don't know for sure. I tried to use it on FC2 and failed too. But I remember 
on RedHat8 (or maybe it was 9) it worked.

As I'm not expert in Linux internals, I have no idea what could cause the 
problem. I think it might be related to core things, such as 

If you need me to run strace or similar things in my environment, I'll will 
gladly help. However, I saw this faulty behaviour on other servers too, so you 
couldn't find trouble reproducing it.

Finally! It seems that this was fixed in new 2.0.8 version. I compiled 2.0.8 
on fedora5 and everything works as expected.

The problem was that conntrack file format changed in linux 2.6.9.

Please rebuild rpm with new version.
Comment 5 Matthias Saou 2006-06-29 06:21:37 EDT
Thanks a lot for all those details! I've just rebuilt 2.0.8 packages for FC-5
and devel, improving a few other details too :
- Update to 2.0.8 which fixes bugzilla #173754.
- Don't flag init script as %%config.
- Rename init script "identd" -> "oidentd", remove pidentd conflict and add
  update scriplet special case when upgrading from the "identd" service.
- Move options into a sysconfig file.
