Several special actions by finger can be invoked by specifying one of the following strings for name. If a remote host is fingered, these actions may not be available or produce another result.
.help Displays the help message of the fingered system. .site Prints site identification. .version Gives version information.
You are encouraged to keep the information displayed by finger or pfinger up-to-date to maximize usefulness of the system.
To change what is displayed if someone requests information about you, edit the file .fingerconf by using either a text editor or pfinger See fingerconf(5) for a description of the file format.
Put a public key in the file .key If it is a PGP public key put it in .pgpkey When someone fingers you a line will be displayed that indicates the existence of the file and how to receive it.
If you make plans (e.g. You are in holidays for some weeks) edit the file .plan This file is automatically displayed if someone fingers you. Therefore note: Do not put public keys in the plan-file. It only messes the display up.
If your system does not run the pfinger daeomon, the file .fingerconf cannot be used. In this case your personal information is read from the systems password file. Use chfn(1) to change that information.
~/.fingerconf Personal information. ~/.key A public key file. ~/.pgpkey The PGP public key. ~/.face Private face bitmap. ~/.plan Plan description. ~/.fingerrc Personalized finger info script.
