Re: ntpd and kernel message set_rtc_mmss: can't update

                                 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

That is a hint.  ntpdate can't find any servers.  That can be either
because no servers are listed in /etc/ntp/step-tickers or because they
are down or blocked by a firewall.

My firewall is letting every thing in and out on port 123, and I have
servers inb the step-tickers file.

Here is the output from the trace and ntpq comands:

[root localhost ~]# ntptrace

[root localhost ~]# ntpdate

One thing I have noticed is the reach value is different every time I run ntpq.
