On the Windows 2000 computers I menitoned Zone Alarm is running, and must 
give NTPD both Access and Server to Trusted and Internet zones.

I haven't checked on Windows 2000 server, but I may be able to do that 
after lunch.  I dimly recall there being an issue with Windows systems 
having multiple ports, but that doesn't seem to have affected this Windows 
XP Pro system (which does have multiple networks cards, and multiple IPs 
on the Ethernet NIC).
