into my linux server (Ubuntu 8) I have top open the port 123 for ntp. I have write this into /etc/iptables.rules:

:INPUT ACCEPT [7496:9080183]
:FORWARD ACCEPT [0:0]
:OUTPUT ACCEPT [4393:322232]
[0:0] -A INPUT -p udp -m udp --sport 8100 -j ACCEPT
[0:0] -A INPUT -p udp -m udp --dport 8100 -j ACCEPT
[0:0] -I INPUT -p udp --dport 123 -j ACCEPT
[0:0] -I OUTPUT -p udp --sport 123 -j ACCEPT
COMMIT

But if I launch this command:

nmap localhost -p123

return me:

Starting Nmap 4.53 ( http://insecure.org ) at 2013-03-28 12:05 CET
Interesting ports on localhost (127.0.0.1):
PORT    STATE  SERVICE
123/tcp closed ntp

If I lunch this

ntpdate -d it.pool.ntp.org

return me:

ntp is udp and you are scanning for tcp which is why it says it is closed.

Try this

 nmap -sT -sU -p 123 localhost

  • return me:123/tcp closed ntp 123/udp open|filtered ntp is correct? Commented Mar 28, 2013 at 9:39
  • because if I type: ntpdate it.pool.ntp.org return me:"no server suitable for synchronization found" but I can ping it @Mike Commented Mar 28, 2013 at 9:53
  • if you are nmaping it.pool.ntp.org then yes that output is correct

NTP is working over UDP. You need to run this command:

[10:05:28] [root@dewa vol]# nmap -sU -P0 -p 123 127.0.0.1

Starting Nmap 5.51 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-03-28 10:05 UTC
Nmap scan report for localhost (127.0.0.1)
Host is up (0.00030s latency).
PORT    STATE SERVICE
123/udp open  ntp

Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.07 seconds
