What's wrong with a (very) slow link? As long as there aren't any
queueing delays, the delay should be symmetric in both directions
and I'd expect ntpd to work OK.
Does 1 bd/sec overflow some of ntpd's assumptions? Would it need
some minpoll tweaking?
Or maybe I should ask: How slow a link is still useful?
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
