Hello everyone!

I would like some help configuring ntpd to sync my servers on my local network.

one should be master and the others should be slave.

for now, the network have no internet access so the slave servers should sync to master local time, but when the network have access to internet the master should sync to a internet time server and then my local servers should sync on my local timeserver.

so happilly I installed the software and started to configure the /etc/ntp.conf file on the server

driftfile /etc/ntp.drift

and on the client
driftfile /etc/ntp.drift

from /etc/rc.d/init.d/
i started the ntpd both on the server and on the client
..but nothing, no sync here.

so on the client, tried with
ntpdate -b ns
5 Mar 19:27:51 ntpdate[4929]: no server suitable for synchronization found

hmm...not so good and then
ntpq -c peers time
***Can't find host time
***Can't find host time
ho remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter
ns localhost.local 16 l - 128 0 0.000 0.000 4000.00

apperantly i did something wrong but even if I read the doc I could'nt figure out why..

please help me out with this one!
