In general {}; - /* disable auth: disables identd checking */

This will disable ident checking - certainly not what you want.

In auth {}; * need_ident    (old + flag)   | require ident for user in this class

So youve told your server to not perform ident lookups, but your auth block
requires that people have dns.  Fix your auth {}; blocks.
