I need to modify the MiniServ code to perform an ident (RFC931) of the
remote system as part of a PC authentication scheme that I'm working on.
It isn't at all obvious (to me) how to do this with standard callback
functions. At this point it would appear that I have to modify the
code in HTDoAccept, in file HTTCP.c, immediately following the line
 
 status = accept(net->sockfd, (struct sockaddr *) &net->sock_addr, &size);
 
or I could modify the code in HTServHTTP where the call to HTDoAccept 
is made. Is there a better way to do this? Any suggestions would be greatly
appreciated. If this has already been discussed in the archive, a pointer
to the thread would be sufficient. I'm currently working with the 4.0D
source code. Would it be any easier to do this with the 4.1 beta release?
