Re: Postgresql / ident?

Just to explain:

identd sameuser authentication tells PostgreSQL to let the matching
request authenticate only with the same username as they are currently
logged into the system with.  This is not save over a network.

If you want to do as you say, make sure your entry is at the *top* of
the file.  However we do not recomment using "trust" authentication
for anything other than recovery and/or testing purposes.  The safety
of your data is important.  It is better to require a password and use
md5 authentication instead.

Best Wishes,
Chris Travers

Trying to install for the first time, reading the INSTALL file.

With sql-ledger, I used to have something like:

local   <dbname>        <username>              trust

in pg_hba.conf.  So I added:

local   ledgersmb       ledgersmb               trust

and restarted postgresql, but the same happened.

Do I need to install identd?  I thought identd went out of fashion years
ago.  What do I need to add to pg_hba.conf?
