Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm running a set of RHEL5 servers on a network separated from the general internet. I have a router that acts as a stratum 1 time server, and 2 RHEL5 servers that will sync with it and also serve up time for a portion of the network. I'm currently unable to sync the two RHEL5 servers with the time source. Once I can do that, I'll need to set the bulk of the RHEL5 servers to sync with the 2 intermediaries.
I've turned off NTP wrappers, disabled the firewall, and ensured selinux is disabled.

Reason: added ntp version
ok, well either it's the network or the remote peer... it's not your linux host. Are you sure your router is an NTP server? Is it possibly not just serving SNTP, which a real NTP service can't make use of?
