Simpler Navigation for Servers and Operating Systems
Completed: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We combined many of the older boards, so you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. Check the consolidated boards here as many sub-forums are now single boards.

NTP uses UDP sockets on port 123,NTP does not use RPC calls as far as i'm aware.

Re: Does ntp use rpc?

To be blunt, NO!

While there are many individual protocols which can use RPC, you will find that 99% of the daemons that run "stand-alone" do not use RPC. The easiest way to think of stand-alone are programs run by inetd. (Not always, but...)
Examples of "stand-alone"
sendmail POP# IMAP FTP TELNET NTP HTTP Finger.
