I am having some problems with NTP on our server here.
We are using Redhat 6.0, kernel 2.2.5-15.
When I try to start xntpd I get the following:
Mar 31 11:42:28 sylvie xntpd: xntpd 3-5.93e Mon Aug 16 20:55:26 EDT 1999 (1
Mar 31 11:42:29 sylvie xntpd: tickadj = 5, tick = 10000, tvu_maxslew = 495,
est. hz = 100
Mar 31 11:42:29 sylvie xntpd: precision = 7 usec
Mar 31 11:42:29 sylvie xntpd: read drift of 55.617 from /etc/ntp/drift
Mar 31 11:42:29 sylvie xntpd: bind() fd 11, family 2, port 123, addr e00001
01, in_classd=1 flags=0 fails: Address already in use
Mar 31 11:42:29 sylvie xntpd: ...multicast address 188.8.131.52 using wildcard
What is going on with port 123...? I took the bog standard Redhat installation and added a firewall script and the NTP rpm.
Any ideas guys and gals?
