Feature Request: NTP - Ability to Specify a Source IP Address

Tue Feb 23, 2016 12:38 pm

Hello,

Would it be possible to consider allowing one to specify a SOURCE IP Address when using the NTP Client. Such situations as using a routable loopback IP Address or specific local address where one wants the requests to originate from.

Such support is available for RADIUS and SYSLOG.

Difference is that the underlying packages for radius and syslog provide this capability while ntpd does not.
But you can of course use IP NAT rules to accomplish this.

Yeah I figured as much which sucks! I have had to use a NAT to fix it, but I hope in the future one does not need to implement a work around. Same with DNS queries sourced from the router.
