ntpd under OSX UNIX
This one comes from a message posted by "Fred" to OmniGroup's "Mac OS X Admin" mailing list. He notes that if you open OSX's Date and Time system preferences panel and specify a time server to be used to keep the system clock synchronized, the built-in copy of ntpd will be started locally, which will enable other machines on the network to get correct time from your OSX machine.

this is pretty cool, it's a shame that it was posted so long ago, nobody has seen it!

Can't get it to work

Has anyone actually made this work? The other Jaguar machines on my network won't use mine as the time server. Also tried entering [IP addr]:[ntp port], no luck.

Seems this is a potential security hole.

I dislike this behaviour. If I can figure out how to limit which hosts have access to ntpd, I'll post it here.
