Description John Mellor 2003-01-25 01:15:27 EST
Description of problem:
Only NTP servers are punched through the firewall.  Peers should also punch
through, as specified peers are normally outside the trusted network.

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

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Construct an ntp.conf that has peers
2.restart ntp using the rc script
Actual results:
note servers punch through firewall but peers do not

Expected results:
explicit peers also punch through the firewall

Comment 1 John Mellor 2003-02-03 19:33:11 EST
Please alter the code in /etc/rc.d/init.d/ntpd script to determine timeservers
to be:
        timeservers=`/bin/sed \
                 -n -e 's/\#.*$//;/127.*/d' \
's/^[[:blank:]]*server[[:blank:]][[:blank:]]*\([[:alnum:].]*\)[[:blank:]]*.*/\1/p' \
's/^[[:blank:]]*peer[[:blank:]][[:blank:]]*\([[:alnum:].]*\)[[:blank:]]*.*/\1/p' \
This should resolve all of the problems.
Comment 2 John Mellor 2003-02-22 17:22:28 EST
Still not fixed in Phoebe-3.  Please re-open.  Sites listed as peers are not
being punched through the firewall.
Comment 3 John Mellor 2003-02-22 23:00:57 EST
Suggested code change:

replace the sed script assignment of timeserver (2 places) with:

timeservers=`/usr/bin/awk '$1=="peer"||$1=="server"{print $2}' $ntpconf`

This change also fixes bug 82714 correctly.
