Re: Re: configuring ntpd to respond to rdate
gf> You are confusing rdate and ntp.
I understand that they are distinct programs.
gf> rdate (traditionally) does not even speak the protocol of ntp.
I am trying to follow the instructions in 16.4.1 here.
(Join the following two lines.)
gf> Why would you have rdate vs ntp installed on the one machine?
They are not. To reiterate, ntp is on a server.
rdate is on the client as instructed in the manual
gf> Use ntp anyway.
OK; section 16.4.1 in the admin manual must be wrong.
gf> You also need to configure your machine that you are referencing to
reply to requests.
gf> Usually, you need to allow local only clients/networks.
That is more helpful, thanks. I'm still not certain
about the client. Are you insisting that it should
have ntp also?
Thanks, ... Peter
