PFinger

Welcome to the PFinger homepage. Here you can find everything about the Pfinger Finger deamon, a replacement of the GNU Finger deamon. It is highly configurable, secure and portable.

PFinger is a deamon for the standard finger protocol and consists of a server and client. The server can be seen as a secure and configurable finger daemon, while the client can be used to ease the management of your personal finger information. Learn more about PFinger on the ``What is it / Features'' page.

Server and client may be used independently, but it is probably most useful to have them both around.
