I have disabled finger on some of our unix systems because it was (a)
unnecessary and (b) felt to be a potential nuisance.
For a service I am providing I would rather like to be able to use finger to
allow users a "regular" way of querying the service status remotely.
What I am looking for is either a "safe" fingerd (preferably one which would
allow root to specify which accounts could be fingered), or a better way to do
what I want.
