“D-Link and Poul-Henning Kamp announced today that they have amicably resolved their dispute regarding access to Mr. Kamp’s GPS.Dix.dk NTP Time Server site. D-Link’s existing products will have authorized access to Mr. Kamp’s server, but all new D-Link products will not use the GPS.Dix.dk NTP time server. D-Link is dedicated to remaining a good corporate and network citizen.”
Time will tell if D-Link has arranged their firmware to avoid sending undesirable traffic to other stratum 1 time servers as well, but at least the future well-being of Poul-Henning’s machine is assured.
