I have a small stand alone network, that I need to synchronize time on. I have a debian box that I would like to use as the time server. the clients are windows XP. I've tried following the instructions at http://www.debianadmin.com/ntp-server-and-client-configuration-in-debian.html
, but I can't seem to get it working. I get an error on the windows boxes stating that "the peer's stratum is less that the hosts"
My ntp.conf file is
server 192.168.2.20 (local IP address of debian box)
fudge 192.168.2.20 stratum 5 (i've tried everything from 0 to 16 here)
restrict 192.168.2.20 (i've also tried the IP address of one of the XP machine here)
