NAME

xfingerd - simple BSD-compatible finger daemon  

SYNOPSIS

xfingerd is supposed to be called from inetd.  

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the xfingerd command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

xfingerd is yet another BSD-like fingerd replacement aiming at security. xfingerd allows users to be fingered with UID 1000-29999 (according to the Debian Policy Manual, Section 3.2, this range of UIDs will be assigned by adduser). Users can prevent themselves to be fingered by creating an empty $HOME/.nofinger file. PGP public keys can be placed and will be displayed from $HOME/.pgpkey.
