Of those identd daemons available in Ubuntu 10.04, can any of them be made to work with IPv6?

If so, a nudge in the right direction regarding how to configure the IPv6 support would be nice.

oidentd supports ipv6, but said support doesn't seem to be documented very well (or, y'know, at all...).

After installing it, you'll need to edit /etc/default/oidentd and change this:


to this:

OIDENT_OPTIONS="-mf -a ::"

and restart it, then it should listen on all your interfaces (both IPv4 and IPv6).
