What is an Ident Server?

An ident server is normally maintained by the Unix machine of your network provider. It is a kind of nameserver that guarantees your Identity. Since most standalone windows machines are not correctly backed up by an ident service, such a server is built into SmartFTP. FTP servers can do an Ident request to your Ident server and then expect a standardized kind of answer.
