LOcal NTP server


How do I set a FC3 machine to act as local time server since we dont have Internet Access. And how will the client machines (all FC3) should be configured to sync there time with this local server.

Thanks a lot.

Here is my ntp.conf file

Code:
restrict default noquery notrust nomodify
restrict 127.0.0.1
restrict 10.0.0.0 mask 255.0.0.0
fudge 127.127.1.0 stratum 3
server 127.127.1.0
driftfile /etc/ntp.drift
logfile /var/log/ntp.log
I believe if you add another server line above the first line showing the ip address of the main computer, that should do it. Lets say your main computer is 10.1.1.2 then

Code:
restrict default noquery notrust nomodify
restrict 127.0.0.1
restrict 10.0.0.0 mask 255.0.0.0
fudge 127.127.1.0 stratum 3
server 10.1.1.2
#server 127.127.1.0
driftfile /etc/ntp.drift
logfile /var/log/ntp.log

Thanks for the info. I have another problem the that the Local Server keeps on falling back to stratum 16. I verified it using ntpdate -d 192.168.3.2
