the finger incrementation in unix

Post by Siu Hu » Mon, 07 Oct 1996 04:00:00

Hi all:
        I'm using unix in university....and I have a quite useless
question but rather interesting....
        I know there is a command called "finger" in unix that should be
already used by most of you....however, when I think about there a
        Like if somebody finger me, I will know who finger me and/or get a
record of all the people who finger me. Actually, i think of this for
security reason because it may be about privacy or whatsoever.

        Can anyone suggest me any good thing?
        Please mail me.
        Thanks a lot!

1. FINGER: How can I know who is fingering or fingered me?

Hi, netters,

Does anybody know if I can aware somebody is fingering me or once fingered
me? If yes, can you tell me how? I once saw such kind of discussions here. I
think it is enough to know which machine is fingering me.

Many thanks.
