So let's see if I get this right:
The package ntp-simple contains the demon that queries ntp servers and sets
the local date accordingly while the package ntp contains the demon that
acts as an ntp server itself? I only have one process ntpd on my time server
as well as on my client... shouldn't there be two processes on the server

BTW, the client doesn't change its time... does this take some time (hours)?
Can I check in some log files (which?) what's going wrong?
