I have ntp-4.1.0 code.My requirement is to run ntpd( ntp daemon) on loopback interface.I have to sent all ntp related messages with loopback address as source address.How to achieve that ? One way i know is to bind ntpd on loopback address.But i am unable to do this.Can any one have idea to resolve this one? Anytype of help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

Please explain in detail what you really want to accomplish. This is
better discussed in the newsgroup rather than by mail. If necessary
file a bug report.
