Unless you specifically enable 113, it is not open to outside
connections, it treats it differently so that your system works. The
difference is whether it DROPS the packets, or it answers by REJECTing
the packet. If it DROPS, there is no answer at all, and any messages to
ident will timeout, slowing you down. If it answers by REJECTing, the
other server gives up INSTEAD of timing out. IIRC, you could change
this by editing the firewall script, but I would suggest leaving it
closed as per default, which is to REJECT, rather than to DROP.
