I have recently purchased a computer with edgy eft
preinstalled. The behavior of ntpdate
on it is different from what I am used to and I was wondering if anybody can explain. For example, suppose I enter:
ntpdate -q 0.us.pool.ntp.org 1.us.pool.ntp.org 2.us.pool.ntp.org
Each of the above URLs will typically return multiple IP addresses. I am used to ntpdate
IP address from each URL to query and then make its decision. In edgy eft
appears to query all
of the IP addresses returned for each URL.
's behavior been changed recently, has Ubuntu modified it, or what? I can't find any option listed in the man page
to revert to the old behavior. Can somebody tell me what's going on?
Thanks for any replies.
