Apologies, I sent a reply to your personal email by mistake -
Thunderbird has it as default.
Version is 4.2.4p (yes, I know. It's the same version I've been talking
about and I cannot upgrade it unfortunately).
When running ntpq -p I've got this
xxxxxxx-2:/etc# ntpq -p
remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset
18.104.22.168 .INIT. 16 u - 64 0 0.000 0.000
xxxxxxx-2:/etc# ntpdate 22.214.171.124
20 May 23:30:11 ntpdate: no server suitable for synchronization found
(hopefully it will be better aligned on your news reader!)
The same 126.96.36.199 works from other networks.
If I keep pinging different pools, I can find another NTP server which
Question: if I use the pools and for some reason the current server is
not reachable, when the server is changed will NTP update and start
using the new server instead? Or will NTP needs to be restarted?
In other words: if my server boots up when a non-reachable server is
linked, will it keep the same unreachable one till next reboot?
