I have ntpd 4.2.4p6 running on a Windows 7 RC machine.
>From the command prompt, when I enter: ping <pc-name>, ping works
correctly, but seems to be using an IPv6 address. I guess this must be an
auto-assigned address, as I have no IPv6 network as such. If I enter:
ntpq -c rv <pc-name>, I get the error message:
ntpq: read: no such file or directory
This PC is primarily an IPv4 pc, and if I enter the command with the IPv4
numeric address: ntpq -c rv 184.108.40.206, it works as expected. If I add an
entry to etc/hosts 220.127.116.11 pc-name, the ntpq -c rv <ip-name> works
I can't reproduce the problem on a Windows Vista PC running ntp 4.2.5p181.
So, with PCs having both IPv4 and IPv6 running, is there a difference
between ntp 4.2.4 and 4.2.5 which would explain such behaviour?
