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:
But when I do an ntpdate, I get:
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 188.8.131.52 mask 255.255.255.0 nomodify notrap
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.
