My name is Ram Krishnan and I am a developer with a company Cornet Inc
in Virgina. Part of requirements for a product we are building is
AutoKey support on NTP. I have download the latest ntp software and
incorporated it in. I tried running it with a ntp server on a linux PC.
The ntp client kept rejecting it and I looked into the code and it looks
like the key was larger than NTP_MAXKEY. Just for testing I commented
out some of the MAX checks and it seems to sync up. At least I can see
the auth ok on the ntp client.
The reason for my email is we are interesting in the autokey feature and
there was a note on the website asking to contact Harlan. Please let me
know what questions you might have about the autokey feature and I will
try to get them answered .
