Description
Allows RFC 1413 lookups on users connecting to your server. Without this module loaded no users are checked against identd.
Configuration Tags
This module adds the following tag:
<ident timeout="5">

The timeout value is the number of seconds to wait for an ident response. This is a total waiting time, which is the combined time to connect, send the request, and retrieve the result and then close the socket, as all operations for ident are nonblocking to prevent disruption of service to the network.

<connect useident="no">

Adds the optional 'useident' config option to turn ident requests off for specific connect blocks in your config. The default if not specified is that ident requests will be carried out.

Note: This should not be a new tag, but instead added to your existing connect tag(s). 
Modes
This module does not implement any extra user or channel modes.
Extended Bans (Extbans)
This module implements no extended bans.
Commands
This module adds no extra commands.
Special Notes
Ident lookups are not trustworthy for most users. It is recommended that ident is only used for checking users connecting from known reliable hosts. For more information please see this article.
