On older systems, where ntpdate is still available, I'm able to query an NTP-Server without setting
ntpdate -q pool.ntp.org
and got e.g.:
server 22.214.171.124, stratum 2, offset -0.001191, delay 0.06012 server 126.96.36.199, stratum 3, offset 0.001658, delay 0.06416 server 188.8.131.52, stratum 3, offset -0.002385, delay 0.06377 server 184.108.40.206, stratum 2, offset -0.000134, delay 0.05711
So I see the NTP-Server is working fine and could be used.
On newer systems, where ntpd is running and ntpq is available, I tried.
ntpq -p pool.ntp.org
but it responds
timed out, nothing received
What am I doing wrong, what are the right parameters for ntpq command to see the NTP-Server is working and offer a good time-base useable for my systems?
