the tingling sensation means it is working (ntpd)
I am trying to set up ntpd. I have put a number of different open-access, lower stratum servers in my /etc/ntp.conf file. How can I tell if the program is working? I run it with the -d flag but I can't decode the messages to tell if it is able to communicate with the servers. And the peers listing seems equally indecipherable.
I guess I am just confused. I have tried running ntpdate, but it always tells me:
5 Aug 22:55:18 ntpdate: no servers can be used, exiting
Any help is appreciated.
UPDATE: Actually, when I use the associations command, it says that both servers I have selected are in the 'reject' condition. It seems I can't communicate properly with the servers.
