Ive just finished upgrading ntp to version Ver. 4.2.7p421 in order to keep
from becoming a ddos member.  I changed the init.d script to point to
/usr/local/bin/ntp if I run the script I get the following error message
 ntpd error:  'ntp' is not a recognizable number.  I can start manually
 /usr/local/bin/ntpd -u ntp -p /var/run/ntpd.pid and it seems to run.
 However, Im not able to sync with my internal network.  I added the
following to my ntp.conf file:
###Added 02/28/2014 for security and ddos should prohibit outside access
restrict default ignore
##For internal 10. network and public ips allows ourservers to still work
restrict mask nomodify notrap

I most certainly am missing something somewhere since my internal clients
cant sync with my ntp server.  Can anyone nudge me in the right direction?
