I have Windows 2003 server and cannot seem to get the time to sync properly from an external time source. I looked through old posts and tried the following things:

Outgoing udp port 123 open on router
used the net time / (and other known stratum 2 servers)
Went into group policy and changed time service options in the default domain policy and in the domain controller policy
ran w32tm /resync and get error "no time data available" (Something like that)

Any suggestions?
