oidentd_masq.conf - oidentd IP masquerading/NAT configuration file.
If you are using IP masquerading or NAT, oidentd can optionally return a
username for connections from other machines. Support for this is specified by
with the -m (or --masq) flag and by creating an
can also forward requests for an IP masqueraded connection to the
machine from which connection originates by way of the -f option. This will
only work if the host to which the connection is forwarded is running oidentd
with the -P (proxy) flag, or if the host's ident daemon will return a valid
reply regardless of the input supplied by and the address of the host
requesting the info (some ident daemons for windows do this, maybe others).
<IP Address|Hostname>[/<Mask>] <Ident Response> <System
The first field contains the IP address or the hostname of a machine that IP
masquerades through the machine on which oidentd
runs. The mask
parameter can be either a network mask or a mask in CIDR notation. A mask of
24 is equivalent to 255.255.255.0, a mask of 16 is equivalent to 255.255.0.0,
The second field specifies the reply that oidentd
will return for lookups
to the host matching the IP address specified in the first parameter.
The third field specifies the operating system the machine matching the first
parameter is running.
