What NTP service are you using? Is it a full NTP port? If so, you should have the 'ntptrace' and 'ntpq' client tools. If not, you can get them in the NTP NT port at http://www.five-ten-sg.com . 'ntptrace' verifies the current ntp chain to the stratum 1 server. 'ntpq' is an interactive tool with commands similar to the 'sho ntp' output. The 'assoc' and 'peer' commands will show you what you need.
Run them on the pc to verify that it is synchronized. Based on the output above, it doesn't look it is.
You're right, your pc is definitely not syncing with these servers. Be sure you can ping them to rule out routing issues, but since 'reach' is 'yes' you probably can. My best guess is that since these are NIST servers, they might be restricting the response to North America.
It isn't a good idea to be pulling time from that far away anyway. You should really try to find servers that are close geographically and and net hop wise. Also, you should try to pull time from separate sources, not from the same company or agency. It is also considered good netiquette for individuals and smaller institutions to pull time from Stratum 2 servers.
.. for public Stratum 2 servers. I didn't seen any in Kuwait, but you could probably pull time from somewhere in Europe. Once you've selected a few, run traceroutes to see which ones are consistently close. Also check with your ISP. They might have servers their clients can use.
Oh, one more thought. If you are running the latest version 4 software, you might want to try setting the requests to version 3, which has been the standard until recently. The lines in ntp.conf should look like:
server 18.104.22.168 version 3
Your earlier post showed that you had synced at stratum 2, but were 'insane'. This could be caused by extreme variability in response times by going to the other side of the world. It may eventually sync up over several hours, but will drift in and out of 'insanity'.
I tried to get the closest NTP hop from kuwait with traceroute , and i foundthat the one which i have configured in NTP.CONF file --- 22.214.171.124 is close as compared to other servers wheather it is in Europe.
bcoz the configured one is taking 21 hops , but other are reachable going more than 21 hops.
even though i configured ,, and put version 3 than also it is not able to get synchronize.
on the other hand i have installed one atomic clock sync client from internet to sync my pc time. and this one is able correct my PC time.
than why not the NTP service is not syncronizing ?
do u think bcoz of Firewall also it does affect ?
my pC is behind firewall.
but how ? as far as reach = yes when we ask ntpq->asso
