Re: ntpd Question



Hi John:

Thank you for your answer. Tried the restrict directive but still ntpd does 
not affect the machine time. To test it, I stop the ntpd service, set an 
invalid time in the machine and start the ntpd service again. The machine 
keeps the invalid time.

I am able to sync the machine time using the "Time Server" option of the 
"time&date" module in "Webmin". So the problem is not the network, firewall 
or remote server.

It seems I will have to spend the rest of the week reading the (extensive) ntp 
documentation :-(.
