Re: NTP won't update

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I am executing ntpdate timeserver.

Here is my ntpq -p:

    ntpq: read: Connection refused

Like I said, I have ntp running correctly on several Fedora Cor 3 servers, as well as RHAS3 servers without problems.  I have double checked our firewalls and do not see a problem.  The firewall on the local box is disabled so that shouldn't be a problem.  I did ask the guy who actually installed the system if he enabled SELinux and he did.  The only thing that still throws me off is that we have other systems with SELinux enabled that didn't give us any problems.

It seems that ntpd is running, however when I stop the ntpd service and
try to run ntpdate, it does nothing.

I have configured ntp on multiple Fedora Core 3 systems, but cannot get
it to run correctly on two of them.  NTP was installed when the system
was installed and I have even uninstalled and reinstalled the rpm with
the same result.

Has anybody had the same problem or have any ideas?
What commands are you executing?

What does your /etc/ntp.conf config file look like?  Note that just
adding servers lines to the default config file doesn't work, you also
need to loosen the security to let that site send you time updates.

and also firewall config, though if 'ntpdate' works, then
ntpd should (though you can only run one or the other)  There is a
flag that'll let you bind to a different port and run ntpdate even if
ntpd is running, though.
