Just activate the "auth" service  in your /etc/inetd.conf
That's an inetd-build-in-identd

man 8 inetd  for more information ....

The built in identd won't answer requests where the request is spread
across more than one packet, other than that it seems to work quite
well.

        Just out of curiosity, why would one need identd work if firewall is
enabled and cracker probe only detects "stealth" in every port? I usually
disable all servers in inetd.conf.

We use it internally to help with logging between servers. It can
also help other people track strange connections to their servers.
Like anything, you have to decide if you want it yourself.
