User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90)

Description of problem:
Since RH Version 7.0 ntptrace timesout when tracing my own ntpd and any 
other RH7+ active ntpd.  NTPD is active on all my systems and seems to 
keep the clock synced....   ntptrace failes to trace ANY RH7+ system.  I 
have ipchains active and logging but no packets are dropped.  It's like 
ntpd does not respond to ntptrace any more..

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. edit /etc/ntpd.conf and add a time source
2. run /etc/rc.d/init.d/ntpd start
3. run ntptrace

Actual Results:  bash-2.04$ /usr/sbin/ntptrace
localhost.localdomain:  *Timeout*


bash-2.04$ /usr/sbin/ntptrace
host:   *Timeout*    

Expected Results:  bash-2.04$ /usr/sbin/ntptrace
DS1.154.ALSV1 199.201.213.dynamic.net: stratum 4, offset 0.071681, synch 
distance 0.02748
border3.s6-2.dynamic-1.ocy.pnap.net: stratum 3, offset 0.001860, synch 
distance 0.03496
ns1.ocy.pnap.net: stratum 2, offset 0.001812, synch distance 0.03592
clock.isc.org: stratum 1, offset -0.001126, synch distance 0.00587, 
refid 'GOES'

Additional info:

ALL Redhat's less than 7.0 seem to work fine.

Also, you do have to wait until ntpd logs a sync loss message.  The message 
tells us that ntpd has actually become a sync server and is active.  This 
usually takes about 10 minutes.

try to disable multicastclient in /etc/ntpd.conf or add multicast ability to the kernel
