Been trying with a lot of configuration, following different tips but cant get it to synchronize with a server,

ntpdate -u
3 Oct 01:01:13 ntpdate[11170]: no server suitable for synchronization found

and here is how it ended my ntp.conf

driftfile /var/lib/ntp/drift
restrict default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery
restrict -6 default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery
restrict -6 ::1
server iburst
includefile /etc/ntp/crypto/pw
keys /etc/ntp/keys

been changing from different server pools, no answer from anyone...

ntpq -c peers
remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset  jitter
==============================================================================      .INIT.          16 u    -   64    0    0.000    0.000   0.000

You did not instructed ntpd to reply to I suppose you have class C network, so add to your ntp.conf the following:

restrict mask nomodify notrap

Then reload ntpd. All should be set.

maybe, but I did the same configuration in another PC, it worked, I guess that also you have to look after the port, if it is available where you're working, but that was a possible solution, also, since I wasn't working from a full mint PC I was missing some of the basic drivers.
