Since Mac OS X 10.3, there is no identd server on the system. So I've decided to build a standalone identd server. This server runs on Tiger and is provided with a preference pane which allows you to easily start or stop it. This identd server returns the short username of the user which is currently logged in Aqua.

This kind of server could be useful if your Mac is behind a proxy server which requires authentication or when you use IRC.

What's New

Verison 2.5.1:
  • recompiled and now run on Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher
  • tested on an Intel based iMac


Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later

This control panel simply does exaxtly what it says, and no more or no less. The simplest solution for anyone who needs identd functionality.

It's a preferencePane so it appears in System Preferences at the bottom in the 'Other' Section.
