NTP problems - questions

We have many Dell 1650s with the builtin Perc/3 (Di) and PCI based Perc/3s
(DC) running ntp without any issues using Red Hat 7.x and Red Hat 9.

Do you have iptables running on the server?  If so, is ntp allowed?

Do you have an internal Cisco router that you can use as a time source just
for testing?

What does your ntp.conf file contain?

What do you see in ntpq, if you 'lpeers'?

I've not seen any such problems with the 3/Di's we have in some of our
running ntp on Mandrake 9.1 (2.4.21)
