The 226 is consistent. The text that follows it is not. As the rfc says:
It is intended that the three digits contain enough encoded information that the user-process (the User-PI) will not need to examine the text and may either discard it or pass it on to the user, as appropriate. In particular, the text may be server-dependent, so there are likely to be varying texts for each reply code.
If you get a 226 in response to a request for a transfer, the server is trying to tell you that it succeeded.

226 Transfer Complete
226 Closing Data Connection

mean almost the same thing. After a successful tranfer, the rfc allows a sever to keep a data connection open and re-use it for the next transfer. This is rarely done and the second message is underscoring that it wasn't done.

226 Everything's Groovy
226 That worked
226 looks good to me

would all be legal ways for a server to tell you that the transfer completed successfully. I've never seen anyone do that, but English is certainly not required by the rfc.

You really should read that RFC that I linked to in my earlier post. It will tell you what a server can and cannot do. The whole section on reply codes would especially help you out.

ident - Ident protocol client SYNOPSIS
package require Tcl 8.3 package require ident ?0.42? ::ident::query socket ?callback? _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
The ident package provides a client implementation of the ident protocol as defined in RFC 1413 (http://www.rfc-edi- tor.org/rfc/rfc1413.txt). ::ident::query socket ?callback? This command queries the ident daemon on the remote side of the given socket, and returns the result of the query as a dictionary. Interpreting the dictionary as list the first key will always be resp-type, and can have one of the values USERID, ERROR, and FATAL. These response types have the following meanings: USERID This indicates a successful response. Two more keys and associated values are returned, opsys, and user-id. ERROR This means the ident server has returned an error. A second key named error is present whose value contains the error-type field from the server response. FATAL Fatal errors happen when no ident server is listening on the remote side, or when the ident server gives a response that does not conform to the RFC. A detailed error message is returned under the error key. BUGS, IDEAS, FEEDBACK This document, and the package it describes, will undoubtedly contain bugs and other problems. Please report such in the category ident of the Tcllib SF Trackers [http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=12883]. Please also report any ideas for enhancements you may have for either package and/or documentation. KEYWORDS
