See that a1exus[alexus@] thing?  This is an address
that uniquely identifies you as far as the IRC server is concerned.

The parts of this address are nickname[ident@hostname.or.ip.address].
Your nickname is a1exus.
Your ident server works perfectly, replying 'alexus' when asked.
Your host is oddly set to!

It's not identd that you're having problems with.
Look elsewhere.


PS: For goodness' shake, trim your quotes.  It's *very* ugly having to
go through a message with more than 10 levels of nested quotations to
find what you are replying to!

This is also a question that has little or nothing to do with the
freebsd-isp list.  There is -questions for this type of stuff.
