I am trying to ntp sync one machine with another. both runs Debian lenny, and I installed the ntp package in both. I configured the server to synchronize with an external machine by putting
server IP.ADDRESS iburst
in it's /etc/ntp.conf file.
I configured the client to sync with the serve by putting only the server in /etc/ntp.conf of the client.
however, they do not seem to be synchronizing. ntpq shows that the state is INIT which - according to the docs - indicates that "The association has not yet synchronized for the first time"
# ntpq -n ntpq> pe remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter ============================================================================== 10.99.84.134 .INIT. 16 u 665 1024 0 0.000 0.000 0.000
ntpq -> as shows 'reject' in the condition line:
# ntpq ntpq> as ind assID status conf reach auth condition last_event cnt =========================================================== 1 40102 8000 yes yes none reject
Any idea how to solve this? (I would rather not use ntpdate).
