This is a discussion on pool.ntp.org? - NTP ; Has anyone looked at pool.ntp.org recently (as opposed to www.pool.ntp.org)? It redirects to nintakhan.com, which seems to have nothing to do with the ntp pool. Has it been hacked?

Thread: pool.ntp.org?

  1. pool.ntp.org?

    Has anyone looked at pool.ntp.org recently (as opposed to
    www.pool.ntp.org)? It redirects to nintakhan.com, which seems to have
    nothing to do with the ntp pool. Has it been hacked?

    Isn't "pool.ntp.org" a time server chosen at random from the pool?
    You are simply seeing whatever HTTP page that pool server happens to
    have as the main page is presenting to the net.

    Leaving off the "www" from a domain name and expecting it to be
    equivalent to www. will invariably lead to surprises like
    this.

    Uh. pool.ntp.org does ntp from a large number of volunteers.
    www.pool.ntp.org does http from a single point. They aren't the same at
    all (although pool.ntp.org providers are asked to provide vhost redirects
    if possible/convenient/whatever).
