Hi,
     I'm trying to get NTP4.2.0 working in a Solaris-8 enviroment. It is a private and secure network as so I'm trying to implement simply a peer to peer time syncing setup.

I'm starting with just two boxes, they start up fine but always fail to sync up. If I enable debugging I can see  the following 

sendpkt(fd=21 10.10.64.10, 10.10.64.11, ttl=-8, 48)
input_handler: fd=21 length 48 from 0a0a340a 10.10.64.10
invalid packet header 10.10.64.10 0x20 0.000000 1.963272


As I have no external clock to sync against I am trying to set one of the boxes as the reference clock but I always get the same error

10.10.64.11 is inappropriate address for the fudge command, line ignored

My ntp.conf file looks like this

server  10.10.64.11 # increase stratum
peer 10.10.64.10
fudge  10.10.64.11 stratum 10
driftfile /etc/ntp.drift
logfile /etc/ntp.log


Any suggestions would be gratefully received

Steve
