    Probably - what have you looked at? Do you have a working network connection?
    What NTP server are you pointing at (check /etc/ntp.conf)? Is that server
    reachable? Have you ever had NTP working before? Have you check
    /var/log/messages for useful messages?

    Could you be more vague in your request - you have provided almost no detail
    and probably wasted more that one person's time...

    Yes. Turn off the ntpd service using 'chkconfig --level 0123456 ntpd off'
    Or, if you like GUIs, run 'redhat-config-date' and uncheck "Enable netowrk
    time protocol"

    Instead, if you want ntpd to work, and not to fail, put a valid time
    server address in the 'server' definition line of /etc/ntp.conf. Or, if
    you like GUIs, run 'redhat-config-date' and enter a valid server name in
    the pull-down menu.

    Finally, if you've enabled the service correctly and still get the
    failure, you're possibly behind a firewall (either your own or external
    corporate) in which case you have to make the appropriate modifications to
    open the port or possibly proxy your way out via an iptable rule,
    depending on the situation. Google on this... as ntpd via proxy has been
    discussed on the linux newsgroups a lot lately. Neall
