Re: NTP time server?



Cool, thanks a lot Jim!!! I will try it out later -- i can see it is
listening on the correct interface now, so that seems to be a very
good sign :)

Katsu,

Ndpd does both, but it is not configured to act as a time server by default.

Under the CLIENT NETWORK section of the default /etc/ntp.conf file add a
restrict directive that defines your local network (mine is 172.17.0.0/16)
as follows:

# -- CLIENT NETWORK -------
# Permit systems on this network to synchronize with this
# time service.  Do not permit those systems to modify the
# configuration of this service.  Also, do not use those
# systems as peers for synchronization.
# restrict 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 nomodify notrap
restrict 172.17.0.0 mask 255.255.0.0 nomodify notrap

PS:  If that doesn't work, drop me a note, I'll send my whole file.

Subject: NTP time server?

Hello everyone,

I have a question -- before I ask, let me just state that I have been
trying hard to find an answer but as of yet have not found one ;)

Does anyone here run an NTP time server on RHEL? What is the preferred
implementation? Is their one which is somehow a part of a standard
package I can't find? Obviously I found ntpd, but it seems like that
is only used for setting the time on the local server, not for
providing a service. I am playing with compiling OpenNTPD, but before
I go to crazy with that I just wanted to make sure I am not missing a
better built-in RHEL package.

Thank you very much,

katsu
