Hello All,

I do not understand why my setup does not work. I have a freebsd7.2 server which is running ntp.
I have a debian client running ntp client. I cannot seem to sync my client. Maybe I am missing something really simple. Currently my server (10.0.64.235, and 10.0.30.253) config file is:
/etc/ntp.conf


server tick.jrc.us prefer
server sundial.columbia.edu
server alice.ziaspace.com
server ntp.undeadarmy.com
driftfile /etc/ntp/drift
logfile /var/log/ntp.log
restrict sundial.columbia.edu mask 255.255.255.255 nomodify notrap noquery
restrict tick.jrc.us mask 255.255.255.255 nomodify notrap noquery
restrict alice.ziaspace.com mask 255.255.255.255 nomodify notrap noquery
restrict ntp.undeadarmy.com mask 255.255.255.255 nomodify notrap noquery
restrict 192.168.3.0 mask 255.255.255.0
restrict 10.0.64.0 mask 255.255.255.0
restrict 10.0.30.0 mask 255.255.255.0
restrict 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 nomodify notrap
restrict 192.168.2.0 mask 255.255.255.0 nomodify notrap
broadcast 10.0.30.1

# pool.ntp.org maps to about 1000 low-stratum NTP servers. Your server will
# pick a different set every time it starts up. Please consider joining the

#server 3.debian.pool.ntp.org iburst dynamic


# Access control configuration; see /usr/share/doc/ntp-doc/html/accopt.html for
# details. The web page
# might also be helpful.
#
# Note that "restrict" applies to both servers and clients, so a configuration
# that might be intended to block requests from certain clients could also end
# up blocking replies from your own upstream servers.

# By default, exchange time with everybody, but don't allow configuration.

10.0.64.235 .INIT. 16 u - 64 0 0.000 0.000 0.000
10.0.30.253 .INIT. 16 u 47 64 0 0.000 0.000 0.000

The times will not sync, I am uncertain what I need to do. I understand my server is not sync which is not that important. I just need my client to be in sync with my server if that makes sense. Right now my client is about 6 seconds too fast and will not sync up when I try
ntpdate -u 10.0.30.253
Any ideas?

Thanks a lot,

Dan
