- Subject: Finger
Is there anything that anyone knows of in cygwin that runs like UNIX's
"finger", giving local login and time info when run locally on an NT/2000
OK, so I got a free bsd version of "fingerd" to compile run with inetd.
But it expects a UNIX style "finger" which, by default displays currently
logged in users. Problem is that the NT/2000 version looks to a remote
fingerd server. so if I specify a user, I get an endless loop of
finger.exe's (as nt hits inetd, which spawns a fingerd, which spawns
another finger.exe. etc.)_ fingerd allows me to run another program
instead of "finger" if I can find one has anyone got any ideas?
