Running your own NTP Time Server

I have been searching on Google for a good HOWTO on running your own NTP time server, and can't find anything. Does anyone know how to set it up? Thanks!

On Debian, all you do is install ntpd and then edit /etc/ntp.conf to sync to an internet time server and allow others to sync to your machine. Oh, and I don't remember if you have to open a port in your firewall for the local machines to query, but that's easy enough if you do. Once it's installed just run nmap localhost to see what port ntp runs on.


ntp, server, setup
