Description Matthew Miller 2003-03-10 14:41:46 UTC
The ntpd init script contains a simple regex to avoid punching holes for
localhost in the firewall. It does this by deleting any line that contains
127.*. As you can probably see plainly once this is pointed out :) this is a bit
*too* simple -- a host like would get deleted too. The expression
needs to be tightened to match only hosts that *begin* with 127.
