Re: Vista Ultimate NTP updates do not work
I am absolutely certain that I am not behind a firewall (I engineer the
network, and we are a service provider). I do not use personal firewall
software, and I do not have a network firewall or a SOHO-type NAT/PAT router.
This machine is on a public network, with a public IP address, and the
associated routers are Juniper, Foundry and Cisco (doing nothing but moving
lots of bits--no firewall or ACL services).
One may question the sanity of having a Windows (especially Vista) machine
exposed in this manner, but the risks associated with this particular system
I'm going to try an explicit permit on the Windows fw for UDP 123, just in
case "disabling" the fw doesn't really do everything you'd expect. I don't
hold much hope, though, and figure I'll be calling Dell to swap out the OS
for XP--it's quite sad that PC manufacturers are having to fall back to
allowing that option.
