An extract on #qotd
A host may connect to a server that supports the RFC 865 QOTD protocol, on either TCP or UDP port 17. In order to keep the quotes at a reasonable length, RFC 865 specified a maximum length of 512 characters for the quote.
Although some sources indicate that the QOTD service is rarely enabled, and is in any case often firewalled to avoid 'pingpong' attacks, interest continues in the pre-existing purpose of serving quotes as can be seen with web engine searches.
Current testing and measurement of IP networks is more commonly done with ping and traceroute, which are more robust adaptations of the echo protocol (RFC 862), which predated the attempt at QOTD standardization.

fortune is predominantly found on Unix-like systems, but clients for other platforms also exist. Often, users on text-mode Unix terminals will place this command into either their .profile or .logout files to display them at logon and logout, respectively. It is also used to generate text input for certain XScreenSaver modes. Many people choose to pipe fortune into the cowsay command, to add more humor to the dialog.
