Gaia OS configured as NTP client responds to NTP queries from hosts
Symptoms
  • When NTP is configured on Gaia OS machine, machine responds to queries from hosts (in case it allows connections on NTP port - UDP port 123).

    Example:

    [Expert@HostName]# ntpq
    ntpq> peers
         remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset  jitter 
    ============================================================================== 
     172.16.30.109        .INIT.     16 u    -  512    0    0.000    0.000   0.000 
     192.168.70.183       .INIT.     16 u    -  512    0    0.000    0.000   0.000
    
Cause

Enabling use of an NTP server in the Gaia configuration automatically starts the NTP daemon.
The daemon acts as a client and server by design.
