Hi all,

Following the suggestions regarding setting timekeeping up as a daemon
I did the following and got these console messages . . .

. . .
Jul 14 13:04:29 epia ntpd[648]: no IPv6 interfaces found

. . .

The "Frequency format error in /var/db/ntpd.drift" messages have now
gone away (which is a good thing) and the file has now been written to
rather than being 0 bytes . . .

epia# ls -al /var/db/ntpd.drift
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  6 Jul 14 14:05 /var/db/ntpd.drift
epia# cat /var/db/ntpd.drift
0.000

. . . but I have no ideas why I'm getting the other errors.  I can't
see anything in the "ntp / ntpd" documentation or the "man" pages that
offers any enlightenment.  The (in)appropriate configurations are here:

epia# ls -al /etc/rc.conf
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  658 Jul 14 11:29 /etc/rc.conf

/etc/rc.conf . . .
<snip>
ntpd_enable="YES"
ntpd_flags="-q -p /var/run/ntpd.pid"
ntpd_sync_on_start="YES"
<snip>

epia# ls -al /etc/ntp.conf
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  125 Jul 14 12:31 /etc/ntp.conf
epia# cat /etc/ntp.conf
#
# put your default configuration (e.g. broadcastclient) in here
#
server europe.pool.ntp.org
driftfile /var/db/ntpd.drift


FYI . . .
europe.pool.ntp.org = 84.54.128.8  :-)
localhost = 192.168.2.14  :-)
h2348.serverkompetenz.net = 81.169.152.214  I have no idea why this
gets a mention - I am in Germany though!

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation.

Owen
