I wasn't one of those who reported this before, but I haven't been
able to get my server open to incoming requests since Wednesday night.
The requests went up to an average of about 10/sec - not large, but
enough to bring out a UDP bug in my router that causes it to crash
after about fifteen minutes - presumably at one of the ten minute
During my investigations, I also noticed many errors like this:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: NTP
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1
Computer: my server
too many recvbufs allocated (40)
However there are many of these errors that pre-date the router
W2K - ntp v4.2.0
