"(...)no server suitable for synchronization found"
I tried the server ntp.uio.no, but it doens't work. I can ping the server, but ntpdate gives me
the error above. I tried adding the -u option, but still no luck. Any ideas?
By the way, the main issue here is to synchronize the machines with each other, not necessarily with "the internet". So if it easier, I could set up a ntp server on one of the machines and have the other sync with that. But I don't know how this is done. I'm guessing its easier sync'ing with an already dedicated server.
anyway, ntpdate will be deprecated soon while running a ntp daemon will be far more accurate and convenient cuz you could become a time_provider to your local subnet. consider installing ntp-simple -- the ntp.conf file you'll find in /etc is simple enough to set for minutes, and you have your ntpd sync'ing in the background.
But I don't know how this is done
the ntp-doc package provides extensive documentation in html format if you happen to need it.
I give up for now. Can't get it to work. Have tried "ntpdate <server>" using several servers (including windows), have tried different options to ntpdate, have tried and set up my own server. The firewall-setting should be okay. I'm still getting the "no server suitable for synchronization found" error.
I think I'll put it aside for now, and have a go at it later. But thanks for the help anyways, guys!
