I did not restart the computer and NTP daemon was not started; The mbgstatus
reported everything was ok. I started ntpd from the command line.
Anyway, your answer is more or less what I expected. This will probably lead
me to writing a custom script that manages the NTP service (I hope I could
avoid that :-)).
By the way, I am a bit curious to know how other people -that use this
device- deal with this issue? Do they have really different configurations
(or needs) from the one I am trying to setup?
Once again, thanks a lot for you help.
