I have five different servers listed in /etc/ntp.conf. Recently, one of
them went off the air for a while. However, although it was the only one
that was refusing NTP requests, while it was down I got log mesages
claiming that the *others* were, even though they weren't.
The host that was refusing connections was 188.8.131.52, but nothing was ever
logged about *that* host. Instead, I got lots of these errors about the
*other* servers in my ntp.conf file, even though they were all working (as
confirmed by "dmpeers" in ntpdc:
Sep 4 00:24:26 jik ntpd: recvfrom(184.108.40.206) fd=6: Connection
Sep 4 02:25:02 jik ntpd: recvfrom(220.127.116.11) fd=6: Connection
Sep 4 02:29:19 jik ntpd: recvfrom(18.104.22.168) fd=6: Connection
Sep 4 02:31:28 jik ntpd: recvfrom(22.214.171.124) fd=6: Connection
should be fixed in ntp-4.1.0b-1
Closing due to inactivity. Reopen, if the problem is still existing.
