Very simple - just place identd.exe wherever you like, and run it. If you
want it running automatically on startup, read the command line options section first, then do one of the
If you have a logon script, then simply call identd.exe from there, with the
appropriate command line options. Or just add identd.exe to the Startup
menu, though of course a user could subvert that.
If this is to be implemented over a network and you are using policies,
simply add an entry for identd in the Policy Editor (under the policy for
the computer). This should be placed in Run Services if using 98, or Run if
using 95 (see below). Call the entry whatever you like (eg. identd) and the
value should be the path and name of the identd executable (keep in mind
that this path has to be accessible from another computer). Add the command line options after the executable name.
Otherwise, you need to make the changes manually:
Now, the next time you log on (95) or restart (98), you should have identd
responding to requests.
This involves a minor change to the system registry. If you don't
typically do registry hacking, back up the registry first by making a
copy of C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.DAT.
Open registry editor (go to Start->Run and type regedit, then OK).
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
if using 95, or
if using 98.
Go to Edit->New->String Value
Call it anything you like eg. identd
Double-click the new entry, and enter in the path and filename of your
identd excecutable (wherever you've put it), followed by the space and
then any required command line options.
