Description István Tóth 2006-05-05 17:49:20 EDT
Description of problem:

If I try to use an rfc868 time server in udp mode ( in this case the the time
server is the one bundled in xinetd in fc5, running on the same host),
rdate exits with error. Rdate works fine in tcp mode.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable time-udp, stop iptables
2. rdate -u localhost
Actual results:
rdate displays:
rdate: error in read: Invalid argument

Expected results:
rdate displays time

Additional info:

The problem is probably in the client, and not the server, because other devices
can successfully use the udp time service, and an ethereal dump shows a valid
packet sent back to client.

The same test works on a Centos4 server perfectly.

Comment 2 István Tóth 2007-07-10 03:58:04 EDT
I've retested with Fedora 7 x86_64, and the bug is fixed there.

I do not have access to an F7 i386 machine to test, unfortunately.
