Hi,

i don't understand what's wrong, i explain :

i have a ntp server serving my company.
it's wide open to the internet and I want to restrict this.

this is my ntp.conf :

# deny access to all by default
restrict default ignore

# me
restrict 127.0.0.1

# me, directly connected to the internet
restrict my.ntp.server.ip

# my network
restrict 172.16.0.0 mask 255.255.0.0 nomodify

# stratum 2 server
server ntp.johndoe.com



The problem is when I use ntpq -p
I see that ntp.johndoe.com stratum value is 16 (meaning 
unaccessible).

Have you got tips about this issue ?
