Stealth on Port 113

I have tried several different methods to get Stealth removed from Port 113, all of which have been unsuccessful. I would like to allow Ident when I use IRC. My client is Xchat. Does anyone have a work around for this? Thanks for any help.

Hi ppridgen, welcome to the forums

Port 113 TCP/UDP (identd/auth) is an inbound connection request. Since it’s unsolicited, CFP (by default) rejects it. You need to create a new rule in the Network Monitor. Something like this…

Allow - IN - TCP/UDP - Destination Port 113 - everything else… any (unless you want to limit the IPs).

… and make sure the new rule is above CFPs final Block & Log rule (the rule that actually blocks unsolicited connection attempts). This should work.
