    In previous versions of OS 10 you have been able to enable ident by simply doing the following...

    editing /etc/inetd.conf

    and remove the # infront of
    auth stream tcp wait root /usr/libexec/tcpd identd -w -t120

    then rebooting and killing by
    ps aux | grep inetd
    sudo kill -HUP ("PS number")

    But... ident is still on after I have done this in Panther! Anyone know why or what I can do?

    Thanks in advance.
