How to Install cfingerd in Ubuntu 18.04

Install cfingerd by entering the following commands in the terminal:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install cfingerd


configurable finger daemon

This is a free replacement for standard finger daemons such as GNU fingerd and MIT fingerd. Cfingerd can enable/disable finger services to individual users, rather than to all users on a given host. It is able to respond to a finger request to a specified user by running a shell script (e.g., finger doorbell@mysite.mydomain might cause a sound file to be sent) rather than just a plain text file.
