       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  calling  oidentd  with
       the -m (or --masq) flag and by creating an /etc/oidentd_masq.conf file.

       oidentd  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


       <IP Address|Hostname>[/<Mask>] <Ident Response> <System Type>

       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, a  mask  of
       16 is equivalent to, etc.

       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


       <Host>[/<Mask>]          <Ident Response>    <System Type>                   someone             UNIX                   noone               WINDOWS                user1               UNIX                user3               UNIX                user4               UNIX
       somehost                      user5               UNIX     user6               UNIX
