ipv6 ntp pool -

ln -s /etc/openntpd/ntpd.conf /etc/ntpd.conf


Setup Restrict values in ''ntp.conf''


Modify the /etc/ntp.conf file to make sure it has the following two restrict lines.

# Permit time synchronization with our time source, but do not
# permit the source to query or modify the service on this system.
restrict default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery
restrict -6 default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery

The first restrict line allows other clients to query your time server. This restrict line has the following parameters

  • noquery prevents dumping status data from ntpd.
  • notrap prevents control message trap service.
  • nomodify prevents all ntpq queries that attempts to modify the server.
  • nopeer prevents all packets that attempts to establish a peer association.
  • Kod – Kiss-o-death packet is to be sent to reduce unwanted queries

The value -6 in the second line allows forces the DNS resolution to the IPV6 address resolution. For more information on the access parameters list, Please refer to documentation on “man ntp_acc”
