I am having a bit of trouble getting my client conf files correct.
Here is some system info:
- basic net diagram
cisco.private.com <--> toad.private.com (performs routing)
toad.med.com <-----> other med.com systems.
- Systems are not on the internet, but a private secure Internet.
- cisco.private.com (220.127.116.11) - a Cisco router and the only connection to
other external subnets on the private Internet.
- toad.private.com - our SGI server that can get to cisco.private.com
This SGI system has mulitple boards and runs only the SOCKS daemon. The
boards are used to connect to the external and internal subnets:
7.160.1.x private.com i.e toad.private.com 18.104.22.168
128.1.2.x med.com i.e toad.med.com 22.214.171.124
- The toad.med.com system ntp.conf file is very simply:
broadcast 126.96.36.199 ttl 4
- ntpdate -v -d 188.8.131.52 produces nothing unusual and returns
- all other systems are on the 128.1.2.x subnet. They cannot ping
184.108.40.206, but can ping 220.127.116.11 (toad.med.com). This can not
I can't get them to time sync with toad.med.com. Their ntp.conf file
# also tried broadcastclient
The only notible info from a ntpdate -v -d 18.104.22.168 is
the refid is 0.0.0.0 and the "no server" error. I think, but
am not sure, that the clients are trying to find 22.214.171.124
instead of using 126.96.36.199. I tried to point them to 188.8.131.52,
but this also failed.
Thanks to all for any help or ideas you might have.
