Hi I wonder if anyone can help me. I have just installed NTP on our
Linux (Fedora) server but I can't get ntp to update the system clock.
This is the error log:

This is the /etc/ntp.conf:

# Permit time synchronization with our time source, but do not
# permit the source to query or modify the service on this system.
#restrict default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery
restrict default ignore

# Permit all access over the loopback interface.  This could
# be tightened as well, but to do so would effect some of
# the administrative functions.
#restrict 127.0.0.1

# -- CLIENT NETWORK -------
# restrict 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 nomodify notrap

# --- OUR TIMESERVERS -----
# Use public servers from the pool.ntp.org project.
# Please consider joining the pool (http://www.pool.ntp.org/
join.html).
#server 0.fedora.pool.ntp.org
#server 1.fedora.pool.ntp.org
#server 2.fedora.pool.ntp.org

server 2.europe.pool.net.org

# --- NTP MULTICASTCLIENT ---

# restrict 224.0.1.1 mask 255.255.255.255 nomodify notrap

# Undisciplined Local Clock. This is a fake driver intended for backup
# and when no outside source of synchronized time is available.

# Drift file.  Put this in a directory which the daemon can write to.
# No symbolic links allowed, either, since the daemon updates the file
# by creating a temporary in the same directory and then rename()'ing
# it to the file.
driftfile /var/lib/ntp/drift

# Keys file.  If you want to diddle your server at run time, make a
# keys file (mode 600 for sure) and define the key number to be
# used for making requests.
keys /etc/ntp/keys

I'm able to ping europe.pool.ntp.org without any problems, but I can't
traceroute to that address.

Thanks

Toby
