which is silly since identd is not to be believed. i think in rh7.2
it runs on it's own so the netstat command will find it. if it's run
from inetd, then netstat will show inetd as the process associated
with that port. in that case, grep /etc/services for 113 and then
grep /etc/inetd.conf (or the xinetd conf files if you're using xinetd)
for 113 or whatever /etc/services thinks that port is called. 113 is
usually identd, but then if john looney's been around the box who knows
what it could be - smtp for instance... :)
