They are the same IP; same result.

This is very weird.  I see now that I get a 220 line after
about 50 seconds.  But if I then reply with
"HELO www.livepenguin.com" or even "QUIT", nothing else
happens, even after waiting a very long time.

I started up tcpdump as follows:

  # tcpdump -A -i eth1 -s 1024 -l -v net 169.237

and tried it again.  I see that there's an auth request
(identd, port 113) immediately after the SMTP connection:

  35612,25

to which my fakeidentd daemon responds with:

  35612, 25 : USERID : OTHER : nobody

and then, again, the 50-second pause.

Could cs.ucdavis.edu be expecting some other identd reply?
