Re: Get fingered in OSX

Hi,

It's a network service; tells you who's logged in a system:

http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc742.html

That window will allow you to finger other systems (if you get fingered back, that's your problem, lol). Most implementations are considered unsafe because they divulge sensitive information such as user IDs, so I doubt you'll find any system that will respond to you giving it the finger.

Consider it more like a "lookup" facility.

Regards,

AP

It just goes to show that the folks at MIT who developed this were pervs. As most computer scientists are.

What? So far, it's just been a discussion of a becoming-obselete networking command. I'm sure if Diox got his hands on this thread, that would change, but not yet.

I could hear it now...

(Instead of I pinged the IP) "I fingered the router. It wasn't turned on so I tried another IP. No response there either... Just wanted to make sure it was working; I fingered myself...."
