I have two Netgear FVS318g firewalls, one behind the other. Both are defaulted to block outgoing traffic except for HTTP, DNS, and some other common services. The outermost one can communicate fine with the NTP server and get the correct time. The one on the inside cannot. I tried to add a firewall exception for NTP the same as I did for all the other services, but NTP is not listed. I tried adding my own service, and it complains that when I create my own service, the port must be greater than 1024. Does anybody know how to configure the firewall to allow NTP to pass through?
I just hit the same problem and after a little search I found a workaround on netgear forums: http://forum1.netgear.com/showpost.php?p=294039&postcount=8
