    Notice the reachability of zero? This means either your packets are not
getting through to the server, the server's not replying to you, the replies
are not getting to you, or you are ignoring them.

    The first two things I'd check are your firewall configuration (RedHat
Linux includes a firewall that can block NTP) and any 'restrict' lines in
your ntp.conf file.
