I am having some issues in configuring ntp client on a power pc 405 
processor based device which runs Linux .
 It doesn't have RTC support.  We had set up an NTP server in the 
network. The ntp client was configured with a single entry in the

server <server_ip address>

The client was not able to perform time synchronization with the server.
 We were able to perform a time sync with the same server from a windows 
XP machine and another Linux machine.
The experiment was tried after setting the timet to a value which was 
within 1 minute of the time in the NTP server.
Still the client was not able to synchronize with the server.

/etc/ntp.conf on server

server <server_ip address>
fudge <server_ip address> stratum 1
driftfile /etc/ntp.drift
broadcastdelay  0.008
logfile /var/log/ntp.log

Please suggest whether we need to modify the configuration.

Thanks in advance
