Re: Ident - not
Some IRC servers are now requiring identd and that's on 113, this may be why we're seeing more open UDP 113 ports.
I know that more and more DALnet servers will not let you on without IDENTD enabled. I think they are monitoring folks this way to cut down on booting, etc.
So I disagree that a firewall is configured incorrectly if 113 is open. The individual(s) most likely enjoy IRC chatting and that's why it's open.
