    NTP should work, right?


    Hello all. I'm having these ridiculous ntp problems. I've got a network with several computers and I want one of them to tell the rest what time it is. I'd prefer for that one server to broadcast, but even if it would just respond when queried I'd be satisfied. So, according to http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/w...The_NTP_Server
    this is pretty easy. Here's the ntp.conf file for my timeserver:
    Code:
    server 0.debian.pool.ntp.org iburst
    server 1.debian.pool.ntp.org iburs
    
    restrict 0.debian.pool.ntp.org   mask 255.255.255.255 nomodify notrap noquery
    restrict 1.debian.pool.ntp.org   mask 255.255.255.255 nomodify notrap noquery
    
    restrict 192.1.22.0 mask 255.255.255.0 nomodify notrap
    
    restrict 127.0.0.1
    But when I do an ntpdate, I get:
    Code:
    3 May 07:33:12 ntpdate[11026]: no server suitable for synchronization found
    Does anybody have any idea what's going on here?

    As it turns out, this was all iptables' doing. As a last ditch effort, I asked iptables to chill for a while and all of the sudden everything worked. I thought iptables would be mad, but we shook hands and then got beer after work.
