I know this idea probably won't be well-liked, but I'll run it past
you guys anyways. I have managed to get oidentd running on m0n0wall,
along with a nice configuration page in the services section of the
webGUI. 

I'm sure you'll say that m0n0wall is a firewall only, but the
firewall/nat box is the only place you can set up transparent
proxying; otherwise you'd have for forward port 113 to another
machine, and setup oidentd with a up a bunch of fake mappings that
could change. Also, that only gives you one possible ident per
machine, as far as Im aware. Having oidentd on m0n0wall would allow
you to provide authentic ident responses from client machines, and it
would be pretty much maintenance free when adding new clients on the
network, as opposed to doing it on another machine. So I'd ask that
you consider it. Not to mention the work has already been done for
you.


Regards,

Gary T. Giesen


PS. For anyone interested in testing/using this in the meantime,
contact me and I'll be happy to send you the required modified files
- - it's been setup against the official 1.0 release.
