Re: ntp package. Client by default?



Bob Proulx writes:
The entire purpose of ntp is to interact on the network. Not doing
this would be similar to installing sshd and then wanting it not to
listen to the network. That would severely reduce its usefulness. If
you install ntp then there is an expectation that it will behave like
ntp and interact with the network.

Polling the pool servers and offering yourself as a server to the entire
world are quite different things. Ntp should listen on the LAN by
default but there is no reason for it to listen on the LAN by default.
If you want to put it on the Internet as an open timeserver it would be
a one-line config change.
