     Re: monitoring a datum 2100 tl timeserver.

You can use tcpdump on the nocol server to get some clarity on what's
goin on, i.e.
oink|~#tcpdump -s 256  port ntp
tcpdump: listening on hme0
15:00:37.333690 oink.amc.uva.nl.ntp > dido.amc.uva.nl.ntp: v3 sym_act strat 0 poll 6 prec -15 (DF)
15:00:37.335255 dido.amc.uva.nl.ntp > oink.amc.uva.nl.ntp: v3 sym_pas strat 3 poll 6 prec -16 (DF)
15:00:45.684462 oink.amc.uva.nl.38128 > fido.amc.uva.nl.ntp: [len=12] v3 res1 strat 2 poll 25 prec 45 (DF)

the first to packets are my own ntp daemon the other are from the nocol
server i guess. Also you can use ntpdate -d ntp-server to see if you
can retreive ntp time info (but i think you have to kill the xntpd first
if it's running on the system from where you want to try the ntpdate.
good luck! Ewald...
