How can I modify the contents of what my own port 113 Ident would say
for my USERID in non-stealth mode, assuming I do this in Windows?

Can I read my own port 113 without exposing it even temporarily on the
Internet? E.g., is there an offline loopback test of some kind?

I'm running Win98SE with ZoneAlarm free on a laptop I use for Internet
work. What software determines what info port 113 gives out, if it
discloses anything?

Thank you.
