I have 2 server.

1- Running webserver
2- Running Database

My Database server time is not same with webserver time. There is firewall after my cloud. I would like to ask firewall person to allow udp for database as the webserver can ntp to public ip. But the firewall guy didnt allow me to allow udp port as he said " he scared public will attempt access to the db server"....is that true? thanks
