/*
 *   ident-scan [v0.15]
 *   This TCP scanner has the additional functionality of retrieving
 *   the username that owns the daemon running on the specified port.
 *   It does this by by attempting to connect to a TCP port, and if it
 *   succeeds, it will send out an ident request to identd on the
 *   remote host.  I believe this to be a flaw in the design of the
 *   protocol, and if it is the developers intent to allow 'reverse'
 *   idents, then it should have been stated clearer in the
 *   rfc(rfc1413).
 *
 *   USES:
 *   It can be useful to determine who is running daemons on high ports
 *   that can be security risks.  It can also be used to search for
 *   misconfigurations such as httpd running as root, other daemons
 *   running under the wrong uids.
 *
 *   COMPILES:  Compiles fine under Linux, BSDI and SunOS 4.1.x.
