I have a jail with multiple IPs. It runs identd, however it only works
from the jail's main IP:

auth stream tcp nowait root internal auth -r -f -n -o UNKNOWN -t 30

How do I make it work from absolutely all IPs?

Perhaps: auth stream tcp nowait root internal auth -r -f -n -o UNKNOWN
-t 30 -a <insert hundreds of ips here>?

Thank you all!

# man identd

    -a      Specify one specific IP address to bind to.  Alternatively, a
            hostname can be specified, in which case the IPv4 or IPv6 address
            which corresponds to that hostname is used.  Usually a hostname
            is specified when inetd is run inside a jail(8), in which case
            the hostname corresponds to that of the jail(8) environment.

            When the hostname specification is used and both IPv4 and IPv6
            bindings are desired, one entry with the appropriate protocol
            type for each binding is required for each service in
            /etc/inetd.conf.  For example, a TCP-based service would need two
            entries, one using ``tcp4'' for the protocol and the other using
            ``tcp6''.  See the explanation of the /etc/inetd.conf protocol
            field below.

It is my understanding you get one IP/jail and that multiple IPs are a work in progress. See http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/jails-intro.html

A jail is characterized by four elements:
* An IP address -- this will be assigned to the jail and cannot be changed in
  any way during the jail's life span. The IP address of a jail is usually an
  alias address for an existing network interface, but this is not strictly
