So you say when you issue 'ntpq -p' you see that your box is synched with internet server and you see '*' in fornt of the internet server.....[/quote]
Hmmm. No asterix... However, the time definietely changed on my box. It was ten minutes off and adjusted when I started the ntpd.

ntp2.ptb.de .PTB. 1 - 19 18h 1 16.817 -47.937 0.008
One thing I don't understand: When ntpd is running on my box shouldn't it broadcast the time regardless of whether the server itself is sync'ed with an internet server? That's what seems to not happen: I can't run ntpdate on any other computer on the network. They don't find a server...
My ntp.conf file on the server:
I tried it with the restrict lines (un)commented. No change.
# /etc/ntp.conf, configuration for ntpd
# ntpd will use syslog() if logfile is not defined
