Please post the ntp.conf files for both the server and the client.  Also 
post the output of "ntpq -p" for both the server and the client.  Be 
sure that both server and client have had ntpd running for at least 
twenty minutes before doing the ntpq -p.

Also post the version of ntpd you are running on each machine.

Finally the O/S and version on each machine might be relevant.
