Because "ident" is a different service, standard, but seldom used,
and probably not even installed.
Why PostgreSQL tries to use it, I don't know, I'm not an expert in
This package contains identd, which implements a RFC1413 identification
server. Identd looks up specific TCP/IP connections and returns the
user name and other information about the connection.
oidentd-....rpm: Summary : Configurable IDENT server that supports NAT/IP masq
Oidentd is an ident (rfc1413 compliant) daemon that runs on Linux,
Darwin, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD and Solaris. oidentd can handle IP
masqueraded/NAT connections on Linux, Darwin, FreeBSD (ipf only),
OpenBSD and NetBSD. Oidentd has a flexible mechanism for specifying
ident responses. Users can be granted permission to specify their own
ident responses. Responses can be specified according to host and port
