There are 2 ways to confirm this working. I hope you would have tried the first option. Second option would help more precise.

1/ To view if NTP is enabled for the GSS device, enter:

localhost.localdomain# show ntp

Ntp is enabled



2/ Use the "tcpdump interface" command to display a record at the CLI of all TCP traffic transmitted from and received by an Ethernet interface. GSS traffic information continuously displays on screen until you press Ctrl-C to cancel the operation.

Does the following messages show that it's working? Thanks.
