NTP Server issue

Hi team,

I was like try to create an NTP time server under my RHEL6 box, but once I try to sync other Windows clients (and some Linux) I alway get an error with syncing with my NTP server, here is my non-hashed ntp.conf file parameters:
driftfile /var/lib/ntp/drift
restrict mask nomodify notrap #My Network
server #This server
includefile /etc/ntp/crypto/pw
keys /etc/ntp/keys

Its good to know that I turned off my firewall (iptables) and my SELinux policies as well and I can easily ping between the clients and the server.

Exactly what error are you getting?

Like this:

[root@host1 ~]# ntpdate
21 Sep 18:13:14 ntpdate[2095]: no server suitable for synchronization found

Again, I don't have any firewall on all sides.

[root@host1 ~]# ntpq -np

That's a misconfigured NTP server.
The NTP server must either refer to a hardware clock or to another server that has a path to a hardware clock.
You can use the own system HW clock like

Consult your man pages
man ntp.conf

But I already included the server clock for inquiery from the other clients, this code is part from my ntp.conf file

server #This server
