ntp problem

Hi,

I'm trying to set up time synchronization using ntp, but the clocks don't synchronize.

/etc/ntp.conf on the server:
restrict default ignore
restrict 127.0.0.1
restrict a.b.c.0 mask 255.255.255.0 notrust nomodify notrap
driftfile /var/lib/ntp/drift
broadcastdelay 0.008
authenticate yes
keys /etc/ntp/keys

/etc/ntp.conf on the client:
restrict default ignore
restrict 127.0.0.1
restrict a.b.c.d mask 255.255.255.255 nomodify notrap noquery
server a.b.c.d
driftfile /var/lib/ntp/drift
broadcastdelay 0.008
authenticate yes
keys /etc/ntp/keys

after starting ntpd service on the client, the following is written in /var/log/messages:
ntpd 4.1.2@1.892 Tue Feb 24 06:32:25 EST 2004 (1)
precision = 6 usec
kernel time discipline status 0040
frequency initialized 0.000 from /var/lib/ntp/drift
ntpd startup succeeded

the output of ntpq -p:
remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter
===========================================================================
my.server.com 0.0.0.0 16 u 20 64 0 0.000 0.000 4000.00

any ideas?

Max.

Re: ntp problem

Hi all,

The problem is that the following lines weren't in /etc/ntp.conf of the server:
server 127.127.1.0
fudge 127.127.1.0 stratum 10

The problem was solved by hp support center.

Have a nice day,
Max.
