Re: NTP server configuration

The first message:


#/sbin/init.d/xntpd start

********no server suitable for synchronization


means that the server specified in the file /etc/rc.config.d/netdaemons for your startup NTP server is not reachable or port 123 on your firewall is blocked. The test:


#traceroute Server is ok


indicates that the server can be ping'ed but that is all it reports.


This message:

... telnetd(16007): getpid: peer died:connection refused


is not related to the NTP problem. Before you specify an NTP server, be sure that you test it with ntpq like this:


ntpq -p


If ntpq cannot reach this system, port 123 is blocked and you cannot use NTP until your network administrator opens port 123, or as an alternative, establishes a local NTP server within your firewall. Then your NTP server will be local to your network.
