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.

...just my $0.02

I see that I can disable ident (113) thru my linksys router AFTER connecting to IRC (on DALnet anyway) and the port is stealthed according to dslreports and grc.com. This only takes a few seconds to disable thru the browser and it's more secure.
