Can't sync to my time server

Hi, I just installed Arch today, great distro.

I'm trying to setup NTP so I can sync my local XP computers to the Arch server.  I followed the wiki and got the server setup fine.  It's syncing to the servers I put in the ntp.conf file (Yes I ran ntpdate first), but I can't get my XP systems to sync to it.

I've looked a ton of things and I'm begining to think that port 123 is not open on the server.  I don't have an restrict statments in ntp.conf, so I can't see what's blocking it.  Just in case, I also added a line in hosts.allow for ntpd.

Are ports closed by default when you install arch?  Is there something I need to do to open a certian port.  The NTP daemon is running and I did add it to rc.conf.

Any ideas?  Am I off in the weeds thinking it could be a port?

Thanks!

/etc/hosts.deny and /etc/hosts.allow

i think you need to put ntpd:all in /etc/hosts.allow, or you could just comment out the stuff in /etc/hosts.deny, whichever you prefer.

Re: Can't sync to my time server

I don't remember clearly, but maybe there's a default iptables rule in place that drops all incoming connections?

Make sure ntpd is actually running.
ps aux

ntpd wouldn't run for me last time I tried. Some keygen error. I have been looking into openNTPD lately.

maybe check this too: http://geodsoft.com/howto/timesync/unixinstall.htm

Try openntpd. It's much easier to configure and lightweight:
