Subject: [gentoo-amd64] ntpd configuration question
Date: Wed, 22 Mar 2006 22:51:18
I don't suppose this is the right place to ask, but I hope you won't mind 
too much. Perhaps I'm just not looking in the right place, though I've been 
through the extensive ntp documentation with the proverbial tooth comb but 
still can't find what I need.

I'm putting a new iDEQ box to work as my replacement firewall and gateway, 
and I've got as far as setting up an ntpd on it for my network to use. 
Naturally, I don't want it to listen on the external interface, so I've 
uncommented the appropriate lines in /etc/ntpd.conf to restrict what 
addresses are listened to. All with no effect: the system log shows ntpd 
listening on two wildcard addresses and, specifically, my external address, 
as well as the (intended) internal one. How on earth do I get the program 
to obey its own configuration declarations?

I'd prefer to use chrony, but it hasn't been ported to amd64 yet so I have 
to make do with ntpd. Any clues, anyone?
