My internet is full time, the firewall is set up to pass all, I really
only use it for NAT, (IPFilter 3.3.1)

/etc/ntp.drift file exists, its contents are: 0.000 0

Cheers

Do you get any entries from xntpd in /var/log/messages?

Is your Internet connection full-time or dial-out? Do you have a
firewall
with port 123 blocked?

Does /etc/ntp.drift exist?

Let us know so we can help you home in on your problem...
