Implements an Ident protocol client.
TIdIdent = class(TIdTCPClientCustom);
TIdIdent is a TIdTCPClientCustom descendant that implements an Ident protocol as a client, as described in the Internet Standards document:
TIdIdent provides a way to determine the identity of a client using a specific connection. Given a TCP port number pair, an Ident server can return a character string which identifies the owner of that connection on the server's system. In essence, the Ident protocol is used like an "Internet Caller ID".
You may optionally set the property value in QueryTimeout prior to calling the Query method with the required port number pair. System-dependent user information about the identified connection is read from the Ident server reply, and stored in corresonding TIdIdent properties. Property values can be incomplete if a timeout occurs, or an error response is received from the Ident server.
