E:\NTP\bin>ntpdate -q 18.104.22.168

I see that the error is quite large at 6.9 seconds, but I thought that
ntpd would see that, and step the clock when it is first run? Both the -q
and -qu versions worked correctly, I believe.

There was an error in the user typing the ntpq -c "rv 12345" as they
missed off the quotation marks. I've asked for this information again.
However, the ntpq -c as worked:
E:\NTP\bin>ntpq -c as
ind assID status conf reach auth condition last_event cnt
1 13978 8000 yes yes none reject
2 13979 8000 yes yes none reject
3 13980 8000 yes yes none reject
4 13981 8000 yes yes none reject
5 13982 8000 yes yes none reject
I'm guessing that the reject is because of the 7 second error, although
I'm uncertain about this. Would I expect to see last event as "reachable"
rather than blank?
Puzzled of Edinburgh!
