finger-server - The finger daemon.

Finger is a utility which allows users to see information about system
users (login name, home directory, name, how long they've been logged
in to the system, etc.). The finger-server package includes a standard
finger server. The server daemon (fingerd) runs from /etc/inetd.conf,
which must be modified to disable finger requests.
You should install finger-server if your system is used by multiple users
and you'd like finger information to be available.
