The `/usr/local/etc/fingerdir/forwardhost' file holds the name of the host to forward finger requests to when the current finger server can't find a matching user name or mail alias. No forwarding takes place if this file doesn't exist. Any lines that start with a hash sign (#) are treated as comments. This is a sample output of what it can look like when a request is forwarded:
% finger -l email@example.com [No user firstname.lastname@example.org, forwarding request to life.ai.mit.edu] Login name: nosuchuser In real life: ???
