Hi,

i check ntp with ntpq -p and get:

# ntpq -p
 remote        refid        st t when poll reach   delay   offset  jitter
=========================================================================
 LOCAL(0)      .LOCL.       10 l   52  64   377    0.000  0.000     0.001
*pluto.mydom   78.79.86.76   5 u   24  64   377    0.294  0.234     0.352

What did the refid 78.79.86.76 mean? This is not the IP of the host pluto!

I think that refid should describe the kind of time source? But what kind is 
this number?

# ntpq -v
ntpq - standard NTP query programm - Ver. 4.2.4p3

TiA

Bernd
