    not many use finger servers anymore, it only gives potential intruders information you really don't want them to have:

    hmm finger runs on port 79 not unless you have access to a hotmail server through port 79 mostly every server on the net has that port dissabled for security reasons you can also run finger commands from a shell like from port 23 (telnet) port 22 (ssh) if you dont have access *which im guessing you dont* you wont be able to finger a user on that system. Where are you trying to run finger from ?? take a look here http://www.happyhacker.org/gtmhh/vol1no1.shtml
    peace

    Specificly, the finger command takes a username@machine.domainname as an argument and returns the contents of a file called .plan in said user's home directory. This is assuming such a file exists, the host is running fingerd. and you have access to the port. Hope this helps.
