Diagnosing a drifting time clock problem
Authored by: awk on Feb 21, '03 02:47:19PM

In general, NTP client-to-server messages can have UDP source port 1024 or greater. Server-to-server are always 123 to 123 .. since the NTP daemon is both a server and a client, you see both.

Also, if you have a LAN, the firewall/gateway machine can synchronize to an external NTP server, and the internal machines can synchronize to the gateway.

One minor thing about setting the time that bugs me sometimes: you can't switch the time server setting automatically when you switch locations.
